Playful Contemporary dance improvisation workshop.
Playful Contemporary Dance Workshop, working with contact improvisation, exploring the power and use of gravity in our bodies and movement and exploring our innate creative potential within movement. Drawing on my experiences with Gaga technique, Skinner Release technique and my research into our animal bodies.
Expect some playful games to warm and strengthen our bodies, exploration tasks to discover and release tensions that we are holding onto, discovering how bodies can move in multiple ways wither alone or together and some good tunes to lighten the soul.
I’m hoping for you to feel energised, alive, challenged , to discover your innate creative potential and to feel more connected to your yourself and your body.
