From 2000 until 2008, Laura regularly assisted and co-taught with Wim Vandekeybus in Ultima Vez's workshops internationally; Such as Teatro Comunale di Ferrara 2000, Kalamata Dance festival 2001, State School of Athenes 2002, Porto -capital of culture 2001, Teatro Central de Sevilla 2001-2004, UCLA - California in 2004, Festival Oriente Occidente in Rovereto 2006, among others. Afterwards, from 2009 until 2013, she often co-taught partnering workshops with Jorge Jáuregui (EMBER). She has always combined these experiences with leading her own technical and creative workshops: These include Power Sources, Partnering Tools workshop, Space Conflict & Catastrophic imagination/Ultima Vez vocabulary, PlayFull Body, The Courage to Create, and most recently, Vulnerability & Other Ways towards Strength in Dance.
During all these years of teaching workshops sometimes I had the pleasure to be accompanied and helped by wonderful assistants. My love and thanks to all of them: Melina Mastrotanasi (2002-2003), Marco Fonseka (2009-2010), Julio Cesar Ungo, (2011), Laida Aldaz Arrieta (2012), Sebastián Méndez Marín (2013-2014), Leif Firnhaber (2014), Tanja Marín Friðjónsdóttir (2015), María De Dueñas (2015-2016), Ariadna Girones (2017-2018).
