Love My Low Back Workshop
This informative and practical workshop will help you identify and address any physical habits, common thought patterns, or beliefs that have prevented you from moving well.

Dancing the Story
Creativity, expressivity, movement, and dance can inspire us, help us discover more about ourselves, and provide an opportunity to heal.
Our memories are simply stories created by the mind. By changing our stories, we can shift our perspective, uplift ourselves and, transform our lives.
Dancing the Story is a combination online and in-person workshop in which you will be guided through the process of recreating a personal life story in images, which will later be transformed into an original dance piece. This intention of this workshop is to allow a safe place to rewrite your story, and bring about healing. Open to both dancers and non dancers, no previous dance or art experience is needed.
Online Class: 45 minutes
This will be an interactive process where you will be guided through a variety of creative exercises designed to help you identify, recreate, and visually represent your story. These images will be the material you will use in the dance workshop to create, and dance your unique and personal piece of choreography.
Dance Workshop: 2 hour class
The first part of the workshop will consist of an integrated full body warm up and expressive movement exercises. The balance of time will be spent learning the basics of dance composition and choreography, and developing your visual story images into a unique and original dance piece.
Materials: A large sketch book and coloured pens or markers will be required. We will be using the free Zoom online interactive platform that you can easily download to your computer, smart phone, or tablet. https://www.zoom.us/signup
