Our Creative Movement and Performance course will help you reconnect with your sense of play and explore storytelling using your body.
As a performer, actor or dancer, this course will free up your creative practice and enhance your improvisation capabilities through movement. You’ll experience a release from the constraints of traditional choreography.
Beginners with no previous dance experience are welcome. If you have a curiosity for movement, this course will expand your movement vocabulary and teach you to express your own unique style through characterization and interpretation.
Throughout the course, you will create your own solo pieces and work as a group using a mix of unique choreography to curate a performance that you will show informally at the end of the course.
The course is based on a method used by physical and occupational therapists, actors and dancers called 'Laban Movement Analysis' which is a way to describe, visualize, interpret and document human movement. You'll discover elements of this practice through:
Led by a professional dance teacher and practitioner
Beginners and more experienced dancers and performers welcome
Movement, Choreography, Improvisation
Comfortable, loose fitting clothing and knee pads suitable for floor work (tutor will advise on at first session), thick socks and a notebook
