Performance Workshop with Donald Grant
« on: May 14, 2010, 02:06:31 PM »
Bit of shameless self-promotion here, but the folks at Greentop asked me to put up a quick post on the forum....

"Get Your Act Together" performance workshop with Donald Grant at Greentop, Sheffield, 7th til the 10th of June, 2010.

A four day workshop aimed at helping jugglers of all specialities (yes, diabolo players too!) to develop performances and routines. 
Areas of focus will include:  a) breaking down the gym mentality
                                       b) routine construction
                                       c)  choosing and working with music
                                       d) stage creativity.
                                       e) the business of show business
and a bunch of other relevant stuff too.

If any you are interested, pop over to the website at www.greentop.org for more info.

Cheers, Donald

We would love to run this workshop again in the fall, when would be the best time for performers to be able to take 4 days to dedicate to a workshop?

Of course, any diaboloist who's read Donald's excellent books would suspect this, but I thought I'd add this endorsement from Arron over on rec.juggling:

Quote from: Arron Sparks
I'd like to add that (as someone who has been through a full time circus school) Donald's lessons have been some of the most practical and useful sessions I have ever had.

Just giving this a bump, 'cos October seems to be coming up soon.

We've got people signed up already, but there's still space for a couple more, so if you're interested why not drop Greentop a line.

(This'll be the last spot of teaching for me this year, as I'll be heading off to Germany to do a run at Variete Et Cetera afterwards).

Yours educationally,

Donald

Sounds like a very nice deal! From my own experience working with him I always had a blast. Great man for this purpose, performing.
Anyone serious into the on-stage-diabolo-end, this is one of those you cannot have missed out on.

This is about a 15 min drive away from me but im stuck inside away from the sun cramming my head full of information on LDLs, HDLs and VLDLS.
