Building Blocks for Creative Movement

This DVD was directed by Cher Mather, an International Course Leader for the Sherborne Association UK and Artistic Director of WISP Dance Club. Its aim is to support the implementation of Sherborne techniques at post Level 1 Training and show how it underpins PE and Creative Dance.

It has been thoughtfully planned and put together and reflects Cher’s calm and sensitive approach. The commentary is informative and underpins the philosophy of the movement experiences seen. It clearly shows the importance of Sherborne Movement Sessions having trained and experienced staff members, who not only “know” their children, but how movement can be adapted to meet the needs of individual children, and how to support them. The need for repetitions, as well as moments of movement exploration and success are recorded showing how little steps of progress can be achieved and how these “building blocks” can lead to community creative dance in performance.

Cher clearly shows that starting at a point where the child is, being able to engage that child, slowly gain their trust and confidence, helps the child to begin to feel at home in his/her own body. This is by exploring body and spatial awareness experiences, at their own level in a safe, calm, interactive and encouraging environment, and is of course still fun.

A delightful and inspirational DVD for both experienced and new Sherborne Movement Practitioners.
