Dancing the Story

Creativity, expressivity, movement, and dance all come together in this fun and interactive workshop where you will be guided through the process of transforming a personal memory into a dance.

The intention of Dancing The Story is to give participants an opportunity to immerse themselves in the creative process, to learn some basic design and movement skills, and most importantly to have fun expressing themselves through dance.

During the workshop participants will begin by recreating a specific memory of a person, place, or event in simple images, and then will transform the images into an original short dance piece.

The movement portion of the workshop will consist of a simple group warm up, creative/expressive movement exercises, and finish with each participant choreographing their own dance.

No previous dance or art experience is needed, all are welcome.

During the workshop participants will be asked to recall a specific memory of a person place or event that has held significant meaning for them. They do not have to share this memory with the others in the group if they do not wish to. This memory will serve as the inspiration for the story board and dance piece.
