Our open classes and weekend workshops are for anyone interested in exploring the possibilities of physical expression but unable to join the full time course. Through these classes you will gain practical tools to express thought and emotion through your body using the technique of Corporeal Mime, "the art of the thinking body". We are committed to offering the highest standards of teaching, to help you fulfil your creative potential.
Our 90-minute open classes are ideal for anyone curious about the expressive power of the body, and for anyone considering the full-time course. We offer a free trial class for first time participants. All are welcome. No prior experience is needed.
In these four-hour workshops we teach you how to bring ideas to life through your body, using the technique and creative processes of Corporeal Mime. It's a chance to experience the thrill of creating from nothing, and deepen the relationship between mind and body.
