“Dance and Play” is a dance workshop by choreographer Kerwin Barrington geared towards kids of all ages to simply experience joy through playing in a pile of leaves. The three hour event will be structured in this way: first, as a warm up, the dancer will learn safe ways of ramping up and down from the ground. Next, they will be introduced to set choreography that is in the style of “back-up” singers routine using brooms. Finally, they will be guided through structured improvisation and given options for movement using the leaves. (The leaves themselves have been created by local artist Adele Reeves.) We will put this all together to construct a witty, vibrant and colourful dance to the song (The Night Time) Is The Right Time by Ray Charles. Participants are asked to study and learn the song in advance for they will be lip synching throughout.
Cost $5 – Limited Space 15 participants
