Log-off and Dance

Log-off & Dance is the theme of the Thursday November 7 Dance for Wellbeing session at Heart & Hands, 7:30pm.

Spending time on computers, social media, and mobile gadgets can encourage us to disconnect from our bodies and our selves; sitting tense and fixated for hours upon hours can really impact our lives.

In this session we’ll use terms from common technology as spurs for dance improvisation – playing with humour, games, and reflection. (A few examples: giving an elaborate thumbs-up to ‘Like’ an activity; ‘tagging’; ‘status updates’ charades; improvising to the rhythm of texting; and creating a few variations of ‘It’s time for me to log-off’ dances.)

…If we invite techno-words to filter into our dancing, perhaps we’ll find that dancing and movement become part of how we use gadgets!
