So, who likes to Move It Move It? Join us for this fun and experimental dance and movement workshop with friends!

Can’t help but break into a dance move in the playground, or are you more of a kitchen twirler? These school holiday dance workshops will be an opportunity to cut some new movements, facilitated by the energetic dancer and local choreographer, Jade Dewi.

Over the 3-hour workshop, Jade will be working with young people to devise individual expression through movement and dance and choreograph the group for a final performance. If you’re keen, Jade will also help you develop a movement performance for the screen, with the option to capture movement using a green screen and combine your movements with video effects.

What can I expect?

This will be a fun dance/ movement workshop that is accessible for young people. There will be instruction on dance and movement, encouraging young people to build their confidence and work in a group setting to make a choreographed performance. There will be an opportunity to capture you dance or movement performance using a green screen to play with your movement and special video effects.

Cost

Free – Bookings essential . Lunch provided
