As part of the visit to Shetland by Room 2 Manoevre, Shetland Arts is offering the opportunity to participate in free workshops with Tony Mills. Tony, who will be performing a dynamic bill of dance solos, Watch It and Such A Bloke, at the Garrison Theatre on Wednesday 13th October, is a highly regarded contemporary breakdancer. John Haswell from Shetland Arts said “This is a wonderful opportunity to work with a major figure in the dance scene. Shetland Arts is delighted that he has agreed to undertake these workshops to complement the performances in Shetland.”
There will be a series of three workshops for the secondary age range (12 -17). These will be held on Monday 11th October (1.00 – 3.00) and Tuesday 12th October (10.00 – 12.00 and 1.00 – 3.00). It is expected that participants will be available for all 3 sessions and there might be the chance to share a piece of created dance at the end of the third session. There is also a one off workshop for adults (aged 17 and over) on the Monday night (7.00 – 8.30).
The workshops all take place at the Garrison Theatre and there are only 16 places available. Because of the number restrictions, booking is essential even though there is no charge for the workshops. Bookings can be made at Shetland Box Office on 01595 745555.
