Out Of The Toolbox is a five-day immersion in dance, choreography, movement, styles and methods. Be inspired at this festival packed with educational and creative workshops, find out everything about new (teaching) techniques, and return to the dance floor or classroom full of self-confidence and brimming with new energy.
Out of the Toolbox whisks you away to the world of international performers and teachers. Plunge into the universe of international artists and teachers, explore new territory, experience a wide spectrum of styles and gain new inspiration, all in a relaxed, summer atmosphere in the friendly city of Ghent.
You will have the opportunity to study composition more deeply, to extend your vocabulary of movement and to learn to work in different styles. As a teacher you will get inspiration to nurture the talent of your students. Indispensable for the new dance teacher, or something surprisingly different for an old hand.
The Out of the Toolbox programme is designed to provide various options to explore for everyone who is actively involved in dance, irrespective of their age or background. What is more, the teachers we choose are used to working with dancers of different ages and a range of levels and bodies. Their approach ensures that this diversity enriches the experience for all participants.
Do you want to enjoy the whole festival or just pick out a few workshops? You are completely free to compile your own programme. There are 11 different workshops consisting of 1, 2 or 4 days. Because the teachers build up their workshops, and in order to create a dynamic group, it is not possible to attend just one day of a two- or four-day module. Check the programme here.
