Ldn Dares Drama Co, in partnership with SLaM Recovery College, are running a body confidence course.
This practical drama and performance practice course teaches skills actors use for confidence on stage that we can use in our daily lives. It creates a safe space where we can practice self-compassion and nurture a positive body image with like-minded folk. The workshops are designed to chip away at confidence and body image insecurities and to support ‘Darers’ on their journey of feeling comfortable in the skin they are in. The workshops encompass a wide range of activities with the emphasis on supporting each other, learning confidence techniques, celebrating the body, and having fun.
No prior experience is required to attend this course and it is suitable for all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels.
As part of this new online blended learning course, participants attending the ‘Dare Sessions’ online workshops will also receive access to tools outside of the session that will support their growth in confidence and body confidence. These include videos, worksheets, an introductory pre-recorded webinar, and further information. There will also be the (optional) opportunity to be supported in the creation and performance of a short piece of theatrical work (either solo or group) to show to a small online audience during the final session (only if the group would like this).
This is an online course being held on the Zoom platform and students will be sent a direct link to Zoom after enrolment as well as a reminder the day before the course starts.
There are limited places on the course. Places will be allocated using a random number generator. We will stop accepting expressions of interest and hold the draw at 4 pm on Friday 19th March. We will contact people who have been awarded a place by Monday 22nd March.
