During the school holidays Dance in Devon offers young people the chance to join professional dance artists and choreographers for a day of creative, fun and inclusive dance workshops working towards creating a ‘Dance in a Day’ to share with each other, parents and friends.
Participants form a dance company for one day, facing an intensive challenge to learn new creative skills and work together to be ready to perform their piece at the end of the day!
We are pleased to be running Dance in a Day events for 9 – 13 year olds in the October half term 2019.
22nd October 2019 – Ashburton Arts Centre
Professional Dance Artist Karina Gracia will deliver an exciting day of dance for the children, taking them on a fun trip around the world trying out different dance styles. Children will be guided through a variety of movements and steps and encouraged to explore their own creativity and ideas. Through working as a whole, and working individually and in small groups, a unique piece of dance will be formed and performed at the end of the session. The emphasis will be on new dance experiences in a fun, inspiring and safe environment. Book onto this workshop day here.
22nd October 2019 – The Beehive Honiton
Led by Daisy Harrison, the day will include learning group dances, partnering work and fun games and tasks to generate your own movements. Movement will be inspired by the changing energy of the ocean; from soft and fluid to energetic and fierce. There will be opportunity to dance and create as a whole group, in partners and individually. It will be an exciting journey through the ocean’s changing dynamics – with opportunities for individual movements to be created in response to the ‘changing tide’. Book onto this workshop day here.
