WORKSHOP FOR WOMEN TO PERFORM A GROUP PIECE Workshop Dates (full attendance of all 3 days required to take part in show): Saturday 4th May 10.30am-4.30pm Sunday 5th May 10.30am-4.30pm Saturday 11th May 10.30am-4.30pm @Embrace Dance Fitness, Penryn Performance Date: Saturday 18th May 7pm@ The Poly Falmouth (please arrive at the venue at 5pm) Stir your soul with the story of the Selkies, the shapeshifting Seal Women of Celtic mythology. We will be diving deep into dance journeys to reclaim our sealskin - our feminine, instinctual, feeling soul. Together we will be weaving a group performance dance piece embodying the oceanic longing to return home to ourselves. This workshop series will be co-facilitated by Shilly, Sapphire & Holly-Anne Coles to create a performance piece to both live and recorded music. Shilly will teach fluid, serpentine movement technique from the Fusion style of Belly Dance and a stunning Selkie inspired choreography. Shilly will also be guiding you on a shamanic dance journey incorporating breath, sound and movement to connect you with the element of water and our primal, animal soul. Sapphire Sumpter is a choreographer and professional dancer who trained and performed with Rambert School of Dance. She leads various dance classes in Cornwall, including a Cornish Folk Dancing project. She will support us to enter the flow state and weave a narrative choreography. Holly Ann Coles is a Singer and Sound-Healing Facilitator inspired by Celtic Mysticism and Sea Folklore. She will lead us on an oceanic Soundscape journey and will also be accompanying us with her ethereal vocals and sound for the performance piece.
