You asked for it and we are pleased to announce that now you’ve got it! In collaboration with our friends at Fallen Angels Dance Theatre, we are starting a weekly dance and movement activity for Outside Edge service users on Thursdays from October 29th. The session will run from 6.30pm to 8.30pm every Thursday and is open to newcomers as well as current service users.
(Please note that this new group will be held on Zoom until further notice).
This isn’t dance as you know it, you will learn how to unlock your own movements and it’s accessible for everyone regardless of ability. This is an informal group for people who are in recovery or have been affected by addiction, including their family, carers and champions. Come laugh with some new friends and get your body moving to help improve your wellbeing. This session is suitable for those who may have little or no experience of drama/ movement/ dance, or are in early stages of recovery.
Sessions will be led by acclaimed dancer and choreographer Paul Bayes Kitcher (Artistic Director of Fallen Angels). Paul joined us as a guest at Theatre Club last month when we watched Upon Awakening & War Within. If you missed it and want to get a flavour of the work Paul creates why not give it a watch or check out his theatre company Fallen Angels Dance Theatre.
Moving Recovery will help you to:
- Build confidence
- Have fun
- Explore your body
- Find the joy in movement
- Develop focus and commitment
You can just drop-in as part of your recovery process, but we do request that you have abstained that day to take part.
Moving Recovery participants are encouraged to attend OETC’s Social Activities, such as free Theatre Trips and Service User Social Events. Opportunities are advertised to current participants via email and text message.
