Free dance & movement workshop with Curious Motion October 27

Wednesday 27 October | 10am – 12pm

Orangebox Youth Centre, 1 Blackledge, Halifax HX1 1AF

We have a fun and accessible dance and movement workshop for young people coming up in half term! An introduction to dance through fun sequences and activities, followed by time to create your own ideas and find out how you like to move!

The first half of the session will involve exploring some phrases and sequences inspired by contemporary dance, focusing on feeling energised and building confidence. Then, participants will explore a range of fun creative tasks to create their own ideas, finishing with combining their ideas together for a celebration of their achievements through a short group choreography.
