Creative Dance

 

 
Crossroad Arts has conducted dance, visual art, music and theatre workshops at Bluecare Respite Centre over the past 3 years. 
Bluecare participants have exercised confidence building activities by orchestrating DIY music. There has been a strong focus on using unconventional objects as percussive instruments. Using a cardboard box and motif beats, the group created a percussive  piece. Elements have later been used in Crossroad Art performances.
New technologies were also explored with ipad and iphone apps. Participants were then able to create music without limitations. The group expressed a desire to explore theatre techniques through story telling. Incorporating the percussive music, cardboard boxes, the iphone, ipad and movement, the participants produced tableaus individually and as a whole group.
