Element Workshops

I will be running Element Workshops over 4 sessions from Eaton Bishop Village Hall throughout September on a Tuesday evening 6.15pm – 7.45pm. I would love it, if you could join me and treat yourself to some ‘me time’ this September.

We will be connecting with the four Elements – Earth, Water, Fire and Air and discover how they feature in your life and how you can draw new inspiration from them to  integrate into your everyday or creative life.

Each week a different element will be explored through embodiment, movement, dance, play and meditations within a small group.

I am a trained Dance Movement Psychotherapist and Movement Practitioner and will guide you through the session to allow you to explore, experiment and discover in a safe environment.

When?

Dates: 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th September 2018

Time: 6.15pm – 7.45pm

Where?

Eaton Bishop Village Hall, Hereford, HR2 9QW

£40 for all 4 sessions to be paid prior to the first session

Booking is essential, as places are limited.

To book a place:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/elements-workshop-tickets-49127744406 or contact me using the below form to book your place or if you have any questions.

Questions you may have:

Do I need any dance experience? No, not at all. It is about connecting with the movements that your body authentically creates, rather than a specific dance technique.

Do I need to wear anything in particular? I recommend wearing comfortable clothing that doesn’t restrict your movements. You may choose to go barefoot or wear soft shoes with a sole, so that you don’t slip.

Do I need to bring anything in particular? A bottle of water and a mat or blanket is all you require.

Thank you for your time and please do get in touch if you have any questions or feel free to forward this email on, if you think you may know someone who might be interested.

‘James’

Throughout Autumn 2017 I developed the project ‘James’ for HCA Dance students. The project involved the creation of a promenade performance of Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach, which was then performed at the Folly Arts Theatre, Hereford in December 2017.

James 2All students received Aerial Dance Training. Each dancer had a specific character to play from the book and developed the characters using Laban’s movement analysis with this, as well as animal study. The dancers were very much involved in the choreographic process and were able to make creative choices throughout.

One dancer created an amazing puppet to represent the grasshopper and Claire Coache from Open Sky Productions worked with the students on their puppetry skills to enhance the performance further.James 1

James was performed 4 times throughout the day in December 2017 to different audiences, including Primary Schools, Art College students and friends and family.
