Dance and Movement by Elina Akhmetova
Movers and shakers, come and join us in this fun inclusive dance & movement workshop! We are going to treat our bodies kindly as our homes, with lots of fun exercises strengthening the core, mobilising the spine, getting on our feet and getting to know a fuller breadth of our physical potential. Equally, we will work with partners to see how we can strengthen whilst adapting to each other. The class will include breathing, shaking, bouncing, dance phrasing, movement research, a lot of partner-work and contact – a lot of play, a lot of laughter and all done with a lot of love. All are welcome, no prior experience necessary. Everybody dance! Spaces are limited (10 max), so you’re encouraged to inscribe yourself as soon as possible.
Tickets an additional £5, limited spaces
16:00 – 17:30:

If you’re interested in poetry techniques or simply want to learn how to stand in front of an audience, this workshop will predominantly focus on what it feels like to be out of your comfort zone.
