Ages 5 - 7 Years Old

In this workshop dancers will be introduced to devised theatre/improv dance. Starting with a simple warm up for body awareness and creating a safe space to create then to a  quick intro of terms so we can all speak the same language in the room. Students will create a dance/story with movement based on different themes such as food, i.e. popcorn, cotton candy, ice cream etc.. All coming together in a group piece based on a popular story/nursery rhyme. Created totally by the young dancers! Devising is a wonderful way to allow dancers/little creators to use their minds, bodies, and unique perspectives to create a totally original theatre piece with movement as a fundamental way to tell their story. 

Dance Improv

$60

with Danielle Mumpower

Calendar Nov 7, 2020 at 1 pm

Ages 13 and Older

This workshop is designed to help dancers get out of their heads and into their bodies! We will warm up thoroughly and then move into a number of tasks, learning how their body moves, carving through space and mostly importantly trusting their own creativity. Minimal dance training needed, dancers just need to come in with excitement for movement as well as an open heart to learn together! Each improv exercise is designed to allow dancers to create a narrative and embrace the freedom of dance and break away from the restrictions that traditional dance training can create. Join us for a fun filled workshop, ending with each dancer creating their own short piece based on a poem/song lyric/ or quote chosen by the dancer!
