Project Dare, in partnership with South London and Maudsley Recovery College, are running a body confidence/body image course for the LGBTQ+ community from 3rd October- 19th December 2019.
They have been awarded National Lottery funding to continue our work to run their award-winning Dare Sessions for the young LGBTQIA+ community.
The course employs drama, movement, performance, and a variety of practical activities that explore body image, practice self-compassion and nurture self-esteem.
These all-practical workshops aim to chip away at the body image insecurities of participants and to support ‘Darers’ on their journey of feeling comfortable being in the skin they are in.
The emphasis is on celebrating the body and having fun. The activities taken each week depend on the specific group and are subject to change, but you can expect to learn skills actors use for confidence on stage, to act in scenes and explore movement, voice and physicality.
A sense of play is a key ingredient to bring along as each session you will partake in warm-ups activities and games.
Previous participants have created their own acts to perform in a final showcase. The acts have included choreographed dance routines, live improvisation, acting in scenes, film footage, devised theatre and written & performed pieces of spoken word or poetry.
You are supported at each stage of the process by a LGBTQIA+ team and youdo not need any particular skill-set to take part. However it is 90% practical and involves you working as a team player.
It is for all sizes and fitness levels. We will do our very best to support your involvement if you have a particular need
