Samuel Baxter Workshop 5Working with company’s and Choreographers such as Zoo Nation, James Wilton Dance, Southpaw Dance Company, Anton Lachky, Chris Scott and Mandy Moore. Alongside several film productions, working with directors such as Tom Hooper, Paul Thomas Anderson, Mark Webb, Nia DeCosta, Jon M Chu, Micheal Gracey and Danny Boyle. As well as working on Disney and Marvel film productions.
Samuels signature movement style has been crafted over many years. With its base being a mix of breaking, Capoeira and gymnastics, blended together with his training in contemporary dance.
The base of Samuel’s teaching practice has come from his experience within the Ferus Animi Terra Nova teaching collective, of which he’s been a contributor since 2016. At its core His practice explores how we can digest and replicate highly complex information (movement, Rhythm, performance) as efficiently as possible. How much can we observe, and how well can we replicate it. We will use this base to explore phrase work and technical elements of ground work through the workshop.
