Poetry and Motion

Instructor(s): Lisa Johnson
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

Come explore the power and physicality of words and the dramatization of the senses as poetry and dance meet. With an emphasis on sights and sounds, young minds will develop new ways of thinking about writing and dancing as a new art form. This unique blend influences creativity—that will provoke our hands to paint feelings, our muscles to sculpt movement, and our senses to translate music.

This workshop will function like a laboratory—open to individuals who desire to experiment with writing and movement. We will explore artistic intersections and aspire to reach heights, depths, and the strange in-betweens. Designed for dancers, non-dancers, boys, girls, poets, and non-poets alike. Improves discipline and critical thinking. skills. On Friday we’ll have a final performance for family and friends.
