We had the very first workshop for DANCE DIARIES: NARRANDERA kick off on August 24th.
Six wonderful and brave folk turned up to the workshop and we started with a cup of tea and a long talk. You know ~ about this and about that, and that, and that. A ‘getting to know you’ kind of chat. A few teas and bikkies later, we launched into a workout to the tunes of jazz and mo-town classics. Then some exercises with… cotton! I call these kinds of exercises sensitivity exercises. I reckon this was a little obscure for everyone but seemed to be fun anyway. Then we did the ‘hand mirror’ activity. There’s a whole world of dance that just lies in the expression of our hands and i wanted to explore this.
I say the participants are brave as its no easy thing to step into a workshop room with complete strangers (Video Artist Martin Fox and myself), no matter what age one is, and be open to come what may. In my book this already shows amazing spirit!
So I want to welcome you to the DANCE DIARIES cast: Doreen Angove, Betty Bradney; Marj Anslow; Gwen Lee and Chas and Bev Cornell!
