The Old Globe Rehearsal Halls, House of Charm

Join us for a morning of exploring movement through an expressive arts lens.  Want to strengthen the embodiment of your students? Enhance the kinesthetic range of your young actors through movement experiences that also cultivate social emotional skill building?  Longing to use movement more often as a tool for discovery in your classroom or rehearsal process? This fun and interactive workshop will get you moving, doing, and reflecting as you get connected with a wide variety of exercises and activities that you can use immediately with your students.

This workshop is open to anyone regardless of movement ability or experience.  It is geared toward teaching artists and classroom teachers who teach theatre and want to broaden their repertoire of movement-based warm-ups, prompts, frames, and composition tools.
