Maiya Leeke Masterclass (16+)


Maiya’s workshop will be based around her ongoing curiosity into the translation and communication of movement. The session will explore musicality through improvised tasks with inspiration being drawn from Maiya’s jazz musicianship. It will be a moment to delve deeper into individual explorations and possibilities.
