Dance 5: Observe without your eyes (reality/fantasy)

With a blindfold over their eyes, the kids were helped by their friends around the studio to feel what a door or a handle, a chair or a table feels like using their senses, specially touch.
The kids then tried to reproduce through movement this feeling by making shapes or actions in the space. They created short mimes, as if they were in their own house, and the other kids loved to guess what was going on.
From reality we moved onto fantasy… The kids went wild. Each of them danced a story they made up and told it later to everyone.
The kids realised that in order to express something with movement, they need to see it in front of their eyes as if it was real and to believe strongly in their story. Great fun and creative class!
