This series of online classes provide an opportunity to slow down, fill our lungs with precious air, energise our bodies and stay connected in these difficult times of social isolation.

Sessions are based in dance technique, exploration and improvisation supported by work on the alignment of the spine and breath to relieve tension and energise the body, while acknowledging and allowing emotion to be expressed through our physicality. We will also use drawing and creative writing, drawing from our movement experience in class.

Please wear lose clothing and prepare a comfortable space to move.
No previous dance experience required. Please also have art materials, pen and paper at hand for drawing and creative writing activities.

The link to download Zoom can be found here. We recommend you doing this in advance of your first session with us. You can also download the 'Zoom' app.
