About the workshop
Shifting Pop is a sensory and emotional exploration of popping to guide the dancer toward a
different body awareness and a metamorphosis in order to expand the range of possibilities.
Shifting Pop finds its roots in the technique of popping, a funk-style dance born in the United
States Linda Hayford excels in. Created and developed by the choreographer and dancer in
the course of experimentation and creation (her solo Shapeshifting, the duo AlShe/Me, and
the recent piece Recovering), this corporeal language unfolds through isolated figures and the
positioning of the body.
* Advanced. In this workshop you need a high level dance experience not particularly in the same style as the workshop. During these workshops a higher tempo will be maintained with a focus on each teacher's individual technique.
The workshops will be held in english.
About Linda Hayford
Although Linda Hayford is best known as an ambassador of popping, her dance practice has evolved through the encounter between genres and moves. Taking a crossover of styles as her starting point, the choreographer seeks an aesthetic
focused on metamorphosis.
