Workshop led by Bhavani Lorraine Nelson
Movement Matters, 30 Elm Court 1st floor, Great Barrington, 6:30 p.m.
In this workshop you’ll free your voice from the ground up with simple exercises to open the body; empower yourself to express more fully in every area of your life; luxuriate in the feeling that comes from sounding with like-hearted others; and use your experience of that exercise as inspiration for a short piece of writing, which you may share with the group if you wish. It’s guaranteed to be an enriching experience. Come dressed for movement and ready to fall in love–with your sound.
