Training

Breath. Joy. Fire.

Walkabout’s ensemble practice unlocks the primal impulses in our present selves. We begin with breath, song, leaping and running, partner acrobatics, improvisation, dance, and composition to access our bodies, fears, and revelations. We doggedly pursue joy. We want to get better at things, to surrender to our imagination, to connect emotionally, and to live for a series of moments untamed and more fully aware.
