We are privileged to have such an amazing artist sharing insight and knowledge on his own companies work. To have a choreographer who is in such demand by the dance scene, a part of this workshop, will be quite an experience to remember. Shay Kuebler is constantly seeking inspiration from dancers and looking out for new dancers to work with in future projects.
