Warm Up Classes

This event has passed

You’ve asked for it – we’ve organised it! As a pilot and available only this August, these are drop-in warm up classes to help you focus on how to warm your body effectively for a day of rehearsal, performance, and generally working as a company of people.

Suitable for all actors, performers, theatre practitioners, and anyone wanting to engage their bodies in a led physical warm up as part of their daily practice and professional development.

We will work through individual body articulation, 360 degree awareness, and working playfully as an ensemble. It will be fun, simple and accessible for all bodies, expertise, and experience.

The classes have a “slow progression” model, allowing you to drop in as you need to without feeling as if you have missed out. Taking part in these sessions will deepen your own understanding of what your body can do as well as gaining a fuller awakened body prepared for the rigours of the day.

The classes will also allow performers and theatre professionals to meet and play together in a non-pressured environment, allowing new connections to form within the theatre industry. Be prepared to have some serious fun with other like-minded people that you can take into your day!
