14th March 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Contemporary Soul Groove


Come an spend an evening with some of the best, brightest and most inspiring theatre, dance and movement practitioners in the country. Learn new skills, release hidden talents, improve your practice and create new work.

This workshop is open to everybody and is the last in a series of Monday evenings at Conway Hall. We’ll guide you if you are a newcomer and stretch you if you are an experienced professional.

Wear clothing that you can easily move in.

This event will be led by Tania Soubry.

We’ll do a soulful warm up, releasing and energising, tuning into our breath, our weight in relationship to gravity, and ourselves, our soma. Raising the pulse and circulation and stretching into flexibility. We’ll then do some simple steps and moves, circling and spiralling, opening and closing, gathering and sending, shifting weight, moving the chi, working on grounding, centring, total alignment and connections, simple fundamental basics, oiling the articulations, balance, off balance, strength, softness, subtleness and co-ordination.

We further do more difficult and complex movement patterns, working on articulation, effort, dynamics and rhythmicality, in a fun and funky way. And we’ll finally do a bigger phrase, travelling through space, playing with movement material, including footwork, changing directions, to get us dancing in a grooving and elaborate way.The workshop will include some floor work as well as a bit of upside down, own movement exploration, given material and own creation of movement material.
