Choose from the following options:
One hour movement session focusing on parts of the body that hold the most stress and tension throughout the day. From head to toe, this session includes rejuvenating stretches that flow between a general sequence of movements to calm the mind and focus on the body. No dance experience needed; just an open mind and a body that’s ready for a fun recharge.
One hour movement session to get the body moving and the blood flowing. Using upbeat music, this session will flow through a short warm-up, a bit of stretch and strengthening, and some high fun, low pressure dance. No dance experience needed; just some open space and water for an plifting workout.
Move and Draw: Intergenerational and Multidisciplinary Session
One hour collaborative art session, exploring gestural drawing and creative movement. Fun for the whole family! No dance or drawing experience needed; just grab a piece of paper and something to write with, and prepare for a quirky exploration of visual art and movement.
