This course will give you a tool box of ideas to help create dance for therapeutic, educational or simply well-being purposes.
Using the medium of dance and choreographing work together, can provide the environment for people to connect on a truly authentic level and allow a meaningful outlet for communication to one another and an audience.
Using a range of stimuli and approaches to create work from the heart, this workshop will explore ideas for development taken from Theatre Inc.'s repertoire - an educational Beacon award winning company (2016) comprising of young people with specific needs whose aim is to educate, entertain and inspire.
