Poetry in Motion with Eeshita Azad

Copy of Copy of Poetry In Motion (2).png

On the first Wednesday of each month, Creative Dance London collaborate with an experienced facilitator, company or artist to deliver a session where you can experience transformation through creativity.

When the body moves with grace, we say 'Poetry in Motion'. In this online taster session, we will explore how words can become a form of auditory dance - a thing of beauty. It is designed to be light-hearted, creative and relaxing. We will explore how poetry can be very personal and can lead to movement, maybe even dancing.

All you need is an open mind. You will be invited to share your thoughts with the group if you are comfortable doing so. The hope is this session will leave you in a more creative mindset, more open and in conversation with your inner self. This session is open to all, whether or not you have experience with writing poetry.
