Joseph Toonga


Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Teaching style:

Joseph Toonga’s class looks at tension within the body alongside isolation and intention with movements. The class is fast-paced and physically challenging, and explores the rawness, compactness and precision of hip-hop (popping) to harness the essence of the style to further investigate it in a contemporary context. 

The class will also include learning repertoire from Joseph’s latest full length work, currently touring, Born To Manifest.
