A day of Movement Workshops taking place at Lansdown Hall daytime on Saturday 28 October.
Brought to you by a group of local dancers with a passion to help people – dancers and non-dancers alike – to connect with their bodies through movement, explore their creativity and develop improvisation skills. A series of stand-alone or interconnected workshops developing the skills to create improvised dance in a safe and nurturing environment. Whether you’re an existing dancer, want to explore the idea of dance, or just experience the well-being benefits that come through connecting with and moving your body, this day will inspire you.
Come and enjoy the excitement of finding your own way of moving individually, and as a group, with the aid of simple creative ideas, music and words.
The day will finish with a series of short dance films.
