Moving Art
125 Anne St. South
Barrie ON
Pricing: $30 ($26.55 + HST)

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to move like someone else? Now is your chance. In this workshop we will bring together ideas from contemporary dance improvisation alongside theatrical character development work to develop new dancing characters. Through a variety movement improvisation scores we will find new ways to move through space, see and breathe. From these explorations we will play with various movement games and dance improvisation scores that work towards having a whole new batch of characters moving together by the end of the workshop.
