Mind To Move Workshop

 7th of October | 10 – 11:30am

 

Mind To Move is a free movement workshop for those aged from 18-65+ with experience of mental health issues (no dance experience necessary). The workshop involves discussion, relaxation exercises, and led movement improvisation; with a focus in exploring and enjoying the benefits of movement and creative expression. Participants are encouraged to take part in whatever way they feel comfortable.  All workshops end with a short excerpt sharing of The Box and an opportunity for participants to give feedback.

 

The Box is a dance theatre piece that explores the impact depression can have on an individual, and how our society responds to it. Anyone who has attended a Mind To Move workshop will be eligible to receive a discounted ticket to see The Box, at Beacon Arts Centre on 8th October at 7.30pm.

 

Places are limited. To book a space, please contact Suzie at hello@jjgdance.com
