Performance and Music Workshops open to the public

These are reasonably priced workshops held for three weeks in Amsterdam alongside the Improvisation Summer Course. These workshops are led by seasoned music, dance and performance artists who have a hunger to continue their research and practice in improvisation towards real time compositions. The workshops are open to the public with a reduced price for anyone registered on the Improvisation Summer Course. 

The workshops are directed towards people of all ages, backgrounds and orientation. Anyone who is living or visiting Amsterdam in August 2020 can join these performance, dance and music workshops. We ask that you read the material below and choose your workshops with an interest in what that teacher is offering.
