Easing back into the studio – a free workshop

Curious Motion are kicking off a research period for new project, It’s Love, Actually, with a workshop for professional dancers.

DATE: Saturday 3rd October 2020
TIME: 10.30am – 4pm
LOCATION: Hebden Bridge Town Hall, St. George’s Street, Hebden Bridge. HX7 7BY

Led by Samantha McCormick, dance artist and Artistic Director of Curious Motion, this workshop is designed to support professional freelance dancers to ease back into the studio after this extended period of inactivity through lockdown. We will be playing with ideas, connecting back to ourselves, and having some fun together!

It’s important to us to provide an inclusive space and support diversity. We particularly encourage Black dancers, Asian dancers and those from other ethnic minority backgrounds, as well as dancers of all genders, and transgender dancers to register.

We will be working in a socially distanced way, and so places are limited – please email us on hello@curiousmotion.org.uk to register your interest. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

About It’s Love, Actually:

We’re curious about the power of love – no, not the 80’s ballad (!), but the many different ways that empathy and love feature in our lives and the possibilities this offers.

As we move through the next phase of living with Coronavirus, It’s Love, Actually explores the positive and beautiful aspects that unite us all, regardless of background, but are perhaps not always at the forefront of our minds.

This is a new venture and we’re at the very start of a process of discovery. We envisage this being a long-term project, involving professional and community dancers, but for now, we’re focusing on play and exploration and will see what happens! The project is led by our Artistic Director, Sam McCormick, who has worked as a dance artist in community engaged practice for over 14 years, and is keen to develop her work through choreography.
