Launch of Addo Platform’s Summer Intensives
Addo Platform would like to thank the beautiful humans who have made the launch of Addo Platform’s Summer Intensive 2018 possible.
Addo Platform has successfully brought together local and international dance to the Vancouver community by producing a two-week Dance Summer Intensive along with Gaga People classes open to the public. This summer, Addo proudly hosted 23 participants from 5 different countries for the dance workshop and over 200 local visitors for the Gaga People classes - all with such great passion for moving and researching their own artistic voice.
We would like to thank Gaga Movement for supporting us and making this process so beautiful, and to Guy Shomroni and Yasmin Mahmoud, from Batsheva Dance Company, for sharing their love for dance. The Vancouver People and Art community fell in love with you. You are always welcome back to Vancouver, and we are excited to bring you along in future endeavours. - To the memories of the past-and-future together! -
Thank you Hayden Fong and Maxine Chadburn for your beautiful energy and for providing our dancers with the knowledge and insight on one of Vancouver’s leading contemporary dance companies ShayKuebler//Radical System Art. It was a pleasure to have you during the second week, and we hope to have you again. It has been groovy!
We would like to thank Amy Morrow and Nicolas Ventura for providing Toolbox Series and Gaga People Classes to our dancers and the Vancouver Community. It was a pleasure to see such passionate and artistic souls sharing their art with us.
