This class will explore story-telling through movement. As human beings, we are natural story-tellers, telling a story through our posture, the clothes we wear, our facial expressions etc. In this class we will explore different tools to tell a story, using the body, sound and emotion. We will also explore sharing oral stories while moving (perhaps sharing a recipe!). The aim is to share a little bit of ourselves, with the intention of getting to know each other better, and expanding our world views.
What will we cover?
In this workshop we will explore:
- How a movement can tell a story
- Different tools to express emotion from our bodies to our facial expressions.
- How to share stories while moving
This is a total beginners class, suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
