Co3 is driven by a high performance culture, aimed at maximising the potential of our company dancers as dynamic contemporary dance artists.
Devised by Artistic Director Raewyn Hill, Co3 implements a supplementary training program that incorporates dance psychology (Dr. Shona Erskine), Power Yoga (Hayley Schmidt at Beyond Being Power Yoga), and Strength and Conditioning performance training (Matthew Tupper at Fitness Renegades). In addition, Co3 emphasises post-rehearsal and performance proactive recovery to optimise body repair. Dr. Shona Erskine’s expertise in the field of performance psychology and preparedness provides Co3 dancers with the tools with which to approach the demands and rigours of a life in contemporary dance performance and artistic pursuit.
Matthew Tupper (Fitness Renegades), and Hayley Schmidt (Beyond Being Power Yoga), both provide expert training in their respective disciplines. Fitness Renegades provide private coaching and performance training programs to achieve the best possible results in the shortest amount of time. The strong, deep and powerful yoga practice at Beyond Being cultivates an open mind and a fearless heart. These foundations in high intensity and strength based training assist Co3 dancers to achieve and sustain excellent performance standards.
