Aberkalns and Rotman would like to partner with you to think outside the box! We are pleased to offer Guest Workshops tailored to your needs and relevant to our expanded world. Our modules are constructed to engage anyone interested in dance, theater arts, or in developing a heightened physical awareness; from non-movers through advanced dancers.  Labanotation provides the common language and building blocks needed to connect to the essence of movement and to the physical embodiment of our own deepest truths.

Together let's personalize an experience.  Our empowering interactive participant-driven environment  promotes critical thinking, celebrates individuality and encourages excellence.  We'll find inspiration by drawing from dance styles which include: ballet, modern dance, world dance or abstract concepts unencumbered by a specific genre.
