Making a solo: Workshop for Children and youth

I will introduce some ways to think about the structure of movement in order to give some frames for helping with creative decisions.

In particular we will look at phrasing and vertical space.

Using their own movement ideas within the given frames, each dancer will choreograph a short solo during the workshop.

Those who want to will be able to perform it for the other participants.

Adults and kids Dancing Together

A workshop for all ages In this workshop we will use simple improvisational instructions, movement games and circle dance forms to make ways to dance together across the generations. The forms and frames are created in such a way as to allow everyone to move within their own range of ability and taste. The workshop will involve lots of interaction and communication in movement. It will be really good fun!
