Kinetic Orchestra is actively organising workshops and classes in partnering and floor work.  Our popular performance+workshop combos allow for a more deep coming into contact with the movement language of our pieces. Our workshops can be retailed for dancers of different ages and skill sets, from children to professionals.


KO's Partnering workshops dive into techniques behind the specific technique of partnering that is in a key role in Kinetic Orchestra’s dance pieces. In teaching physicality and the ability to adapt into different ways of moving are emphasised. In class also conventional divisions into flyer-base roles are raised into question and new ways to balance and enrich partnering are being sought.

KO's Research&Repertoire workshops go through movement material and practice methods specific to the Kinetic Orchestra dance company. Our movement language is wide-ranging and techniques and styles change at a quick pace. In overall,  the focus is on partnering techniques, acrobatic floor technique and physical contemporary dance.
