Seems like this is the time of year when we’re all getting a little stir crazy, but Westport resident Scott Gibbs and Keene resident Betsey Thomas-Train have come up with a perfect treatment for cabin fever.(Colin Wells, Denpubs.com)
Creative Movement, Dance and Play
Thomas-Train and Gibbs will be offering the second installment of their “Creative Movement, Dance and Play” class this evening at the Grange, and although I was unable to attend the first session last week I’m hoping to participate tonight. I’ve been assured that each of the six weekly gatherings are “stand alone” opportunities to shake the end-of-winter malaise and “reawaken the creative impulses that we all possess.”
“The class begins with simple exercises of focused breathing, stretching and an aerobic warm-up,” Scott writes. “Then we explore a series of movement exercises that encourage us to find our authentic physical selves and to discover new responses between our physical movements and everyday life. The entire experience is structured to be relaxed, unpressured and supported to allow you to move to the ‘beat of your own drummer.’” (Colin Wells, Denpubs.com)
Some might suggest that my own drummer needs a little practice. Not so! Let the good times roll at the Grange. In addition to breathing, stretching and movement exercises Thomas-Train and Gibbs will guide us through some “selected theater and improvisational exercises… and possibly then conclude by trying to incorporate the themes of the evening into a group dance.” (Whallonsburg Grange Hall)
Intrigued? I am. Now if I can only untether for an hour and a half this evening…
