Nicholas Palmquist Workshop

14 – 16 Apr 2023

The Workshop Nicholas likes to pull from different mediums of dance to create new ways of storytelling, highlighting the humanity in dance and in dancers.


He aims for a fresh and also nostalgic relationship with a musicality that celebrates the nuance in orchestration from pop to rock to jazz and everywhere in between. He combines soulful rhythms from his tap background with a smooth sensuality discovered in his commercial endeavors to explore as many ways of moving and expressing human emotion through dance as possible. Nicholas likes to challenge his dancers to explore the scope of their expression by creating emotional and intimate conversations as well as explosive, joyful articulations that move!

This workshop is intended for professional dancers and advanced dance students aged 18+
