For more information on KDC Intensives, please contact admin@kamaladevamcompany.com


KDC Intensives run from a few days to a week long and include technique classes, an introduction to company repertoire and creative research into hybrid dance vocabulary and expressing themes through movement. Geared towards experienced and professional movers from any movement background, KDC dancers lead participants in technique classes which can include acrobatic contemporary dance, Bharata Natyam, kalaripayattu, popping and vocal percussion. Participants then learn a segment of selected KDC repertory which may involve basic acrobatic partnering work, taught in a step-by-step and safe manner. Kamala gives participants creative tasks based on her choreographic methods to explore their relationship to each other, themes of the learned piece and the forms in which they are training.

Feedback on KDC’s Summer Intensive held at The Place, 2016:

‘I’ve pushed myself to move in different ways and challenged myself in an incredibly safe and supportive atmosphere. Tamzen and Kamala made me feel like everything is possible, eventually!’

– Archana Ballal, Bharata Natyam and contemporary dancer
