In these uncertain times, ACCA wants to offer a place where the dance community in and around Leeds, can come together to connect and practise. ACCA’s sessions will be alternatively led by one of its members: Charlotte Arnold and Anna Cabré-Verdiell, and it is a space for professional movers to maintain their daily training.

Anna’s class aims for movement and thought efficiency. The sessions often start with a little meditation to get together and suggest an idea or ‘headline’ to be explored during the class. Then we get moving through relational play, crossings and movement patterns.

Charlotte’s class is motivated by the quest for easy movement. Using principles of momentum, gravity and inertia to move with less effort, the class moves through a traditional format with floorwork, curves, spirals and plies, as well improvisation and exploring set material.

All welcome to attend, although this is a professional level class. Pre-booking is essential.

Tutor Bio ACCA are Leeds based dance theatre duo Anna Cabré-Verdiell Bosch and Charlotte Arnold. ACCA first met during their studies at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and as they both shared backgrounds in acting and voice training from an early age, moved towards a more multi-disciplinary, physical theatre practice. A few years after graduating they fell towards each other as two creatives who like thinking, writing and moving. After some time investing in exploring and playing, ACCA was born and they began formally collaborating together at the start of 2020. ACCA’s style has a physical backbone, but draws on character and conceptuality to investigate the topics which inspire each project. The nature of Anna and Charlotte’s work together for ACCA is entirely collaborative, and non-hierarchical. They draw on each other’s strengths, and the direction, creation, performance and planning of all projects is split evenly between the two.
