From Polarbear: “I’ll be leading a session about starting character led stories.
Quite often the hardest part of a piece is the beginning so we’ll be going through some exercises that i do when I’m writing something new. We’ll be creating characters, settings and situations together that dive us straight into something, just like all good stories should. It’ll be like school without the pressure and you’ll leave with the start of a story and hopefully the means to make more.” No experience necessary, we hope you’ll join us.

The Book Club’s first foray into Expressive Dance
Expressive dance is a physical, personal and creative process, which acknowledges the connection between the body and the self.
It is based on the principle that the physical body provides a rich source of information about who we are, how we feel, and the relationship we have with our inner and outer worlds.
In many cultures throughout history, dance has been used to express the basic needs, struggles and strengths of the individual and community. Dance and movement are tangible and creative means by which individuals can express their inner world through the language of your body in a playful, authentic and meaningful way.

This results in greater ease and fluidity in the moving body as well as positive changes in how we think, feel and perceive the world. ED helps to integrate the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of individuals and groups through body awareness and movement expression.

What are the benefits? It can help you to:
Enhances general health and well-being.Increase awareness of the physical self in motion. Release your potential for movement. Develop coordination, flexibility, balance and spinal mobility. Increase energy levels, spontaneity and motivation. Clarify life issues and concerns. Access creativity and intuition. Have fun

Come check our first expressive dance session and be inspired to let go, lighten up and move your body to the beat …
