“I create exercises which facilitate a safe and inspiring group dynamic, exercises which reassure the nervous and challenge complacency.
These practices of freedom enable us to to tap into our creative potential and to express ourselves more fully, individually and collectively.
All welcome to use their voice and/or other instruments to joyously explore the art of improvisation.”
Advance booking is essential as space is limited. Limited to 10 participants
