Looking forward to finding more production and touring opportunities for his solo and larger ensemble plays.

Leaders and Followers - Re-examining Leadership at work

  • Partner dancing has been entrenched for decades in iron-clad models where a man leads and a woman follows. We don’t live in that world anymore, however, and those paradigms are not limited only to the dancefloor. How can your business or organization form a more flexible, contemporary, and liquid perspective of leadership?

Diversities in the Workplace - How re-exploring paradigms can shine a light on ways of opening up diversity and equity.

  • The dance floor has long been a dynamic microcosm of rigid traditionalism in the face of our evolving culture. The truth is men can follow and women can lead. When roles are no longer rigidly and blindly designated perceptions and possibilities expand exponentially.

Creativity and Business - Found a way to adapt partner dancing to match our modern world. Is it time for you to do that with your business?

  • We took the existing model of how partner dance works and blew it up – and over three-quarters of a million people have tuned in to participate in that change. Is your business ready for a shake-up? Trevor Copp will speak about how to use creativity and critical thinking to consider the models you are working with – and how to consider real and relevant alternatives.
