"Failure is unimportant.
It takes courage to make a fool of yourself."
CREATING A SONG AND DANCE
This immersive team experience works across the three key disciplines of drama: voice, movement and song. Working on each area in turn, the participants then draw on their newfound skills to create a final performance piece. The team experience will help to:
- Build trust and develop good listening skills
- Understand effective cross team working and collaboration
- Increase impact and awareness of individuals within a team
- Encourage and celebrate creative thinking
- Enhance meritocracy
- Have fun and create a memorable shared experience
Voice This focuses on the foundation skills of body, breath and voice. The participants learn tips and strategies for optimising their vocal performance, fundamental to getting the best out of their final production and working in an ensemble.
Movement This workshop helps participants explore a range of movement to accompany the lyrics and music of the song. The process moves people out of their heads and into their bodies. It enables participants to maximise their physical presence whilst encouraging creative thinking through play.
Song This workshop quickly gets the participants performing in harmony. The positive impact this has on a team, who may not be used to singing publicly or collectively, is incredibly powerful, and draws upon the success of team performance, when applying good listening skills and support.
The whole process mirrors the rehearsal and production of a piece of theatre, and highlights the skills required to create an agile and high performing team.
