Explore the power of music and movement together as tools for creative expression and storytelling. Music Educator, Nick MacDonald, will lead participants through this active session to integrate the voice and the body in performance through a variety of warm-ups, activities and games that engage and empower the whole person. This workshop is for performing artists of all types, singers, dancers, actors and more. Be prepared to move and make noise!
In this two-part workshop participants will be given a crash course in creating dance choreography for a large space. In the first session, December 2, participants will explore the guidelines for creating choreography through a variety of activities and will begin to find inspiration to create choreography of their own. In the second session, December 16, students will return with a short choreography of their own creation based on the guidelines explored in the first session.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
