After it’s success the first time around, Moving Recovery is back! In collaboration with our friends at Fallen Angels Dance Theatre, we are re-starting this weekly dance and movement activity for Outside Edge service users on Thursdays from September 30th. The session will run from 6.30pm to 8.30pm every Thursday at Brady Arts Centre Tower Hamlets and is open to newcomers as well as current service users.
(Please note that this new group will be held in person at Brady Arts Centre only).
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 artist Hannah Rudd.
Hannah has been a professional dance artist for fifteen years. She trained at The Royal Ballet school and has danced with The Michael Clark company, Scottish Ballet and Rambert Dance Company, as well as freelancing independently throughout the UK and Europe in Ballet and contemporary works.
She has worked with Fallen Angels Dance theatre for some years now, observing, learning, and facilitating within the brilliant community work they do, as well as being involved in some of their professional artistic projects.
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.
