April 3, 2020
We hope you are all coping with the current very difficult situation and staying safe- its a very strange and challenging time for all of us. As you may know, we have had to suspend DR2’s projects including Propeller sessions for the time being, and we will keep you informed with information about when we might be able to resume safely.
In the meantime, we are working on a range of ideas about how we can offer creative activities on-line over the coming weeks- we are talking to our dance leaders and companies about creative physical activities, online performances and experiences- and we will send you details as they become available.
Right now, Grace Murdoch (Propeller South) has come up with a terrific choreographic project that everyone can get involved with right now, as individuals or as families- it offers as opportunity to keep dancing even in these deeply weird circumstances!
The idea is that Grace will send out creative choreography tasks via her facebook page- (this goes live , Saturday April 4th) and you can book a live video session with her to talk through ideas- and if you want to you can video your dance and post it on social media. All the details are below!
So read on…….
Digital Dance Discovery
The aim of Digital Dance Discovery is to give anyone who wishes to a chance to get involved a starting point/inspiration point for us to spring from to – . The program goes live this Saturday 4th April and will be weekly until the end of May and potentially beyond. The original idea was sparked my the wonderful young people I work with and I hope to see, speak and dance with lots of you soon!
Every Saturday Grace will post a new movement task on her social media
instagram – @gracemurdochdance
facebook – @digitaldancediscovery
The tasks are for anyone and everyone and there is no cost to get involved – you can then if you like book in a 15 minute live video session with me (Grace) for the following Wednesday. To book a slot email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message the facebook page or my instagram account before 6pm on the Tuesday. This can be by yourself or in family groups with others. The video sessions will be via Zoom or Skype. Or alternatively you can email me a video and I will message you feedback. The video sessions can be a creative discussion, mini sharing, feedback session or just a hello! You can also share your choreography/improvisations on social media and please tag us @digitaldancediscovery on facebook and @gracemurdochdance on instagram as well as propellor/DR2. It is not compulsory to post anything or video chat with me, feel free to just have a go at the tasks.
