The session will consist of warm-ups, mirroring exercises, dancing with props, moving through space, trust exercises, improvisation, body rhythms and hand gestures, which are therapeutic as well as fun.

The workshop will be conducted by Anubha Doshi, instructor and certificated dance therapist.

Doshi states that dancing in a group will help participants gain self-esteem and confidence, while sharing thoughts, ideas and stories through one’s bodies. It also helps you to be more creative and imaginative while being sensitive to each other’s movement cues and language.
