This workshop is about making space to listen to all the dances that lie dormant within us, waiting to appear.We will journey through improvisational tasks and structures that prioritize the re-awakening of sensation, imagination and creativity. We will attempt to awaken the un-danced dances and give room for our own creativity to come fourth.Time will be spent working in solo, duet, and group explorations focusing on developing trust for our imagination and own movement experience as a resource for our dancing life.Time will be spent unwinding and re-connecting to our inherent creativity that emerges within the dialogue between sensation and imagination. Most importantly the workshop will focus on developing our capacity to listen and respond to our own body’s feedback with curiosity and openness to learn from all that arises.

He has run boys/men only movement and dance sessions. He currently teaches at Chichester University on the BA and MA dance programme. Cai runs various groups for older adults. He currently facilitates “Cain” – a performance company for the over 50s, and “Estyneto” which is a movement and wellbeing group which meet monthly in Galeri theatre, Caernarfon. Both these sessions are run bilingually through both welsh and english languages.
Cai also runs sessions in care and residential homes for older people. He runs movement and wellbeing sessions for those with a diagnosis of dementia.
Cai is interested – regardless of context – on increasing awareness around the value of expression through the arts in all its forms. He is interested in how we can fine tune, enhance and build upon our expressive and communicative skills through engagement with the arts whether we have danced all our life or whether we’re just starting.
