Ever wondered what we get up to at a Living Colour workshop? Each workshop is individual, and unless we are doing a series, each one will be different to the one before and the one after it. However, there are some general exercises and themes that play an integral part to what Living Colour is and does, that will always be part of a workshop in some way.
Open time of prayer – it’s great to come before God before we start doing anything and lay the session down before him, to pray for those that could not make it, to welcome the Holy Spirit into our dance space, and ask that people are ready to move and respond as God leads them, as well as anything else God lays on our heart.
Time of Sharing – this is about the opportunity to tell others about your journey, what you hope for, would like to learn etc. Which can encourage and challenge others with where they are at personally. As well as verbally sharing where we’re at, it’s also great to share what we explore and choreograph during the workshop.
Praying for Others – all the movements we do, are a prayer, however sometimes its good to specifically bless someone with a prayer through movement. We encourage eyes to be open so you can see and receive the movements and prayer that person is giving you.
Fellowship – wherever possible, there’ll be drink and cakes which we can have a good natter over, offering the chance to really get to know each other.
Choreography/ Technique/ Tips – both as an individual and corporate dancer we want to provide you with skills that you can use to enhance your dancing. We share and pass on, so you in turn can share and pass on.
I’m going to leave you with what we did at the last workshop. Instead of thinking about the sadness/ seriousness of the cross, we wanted to celebrate and comprehend, that what Jesus did for us is AMAZING and even in those darkest moments we need to celebrate the cross. This is ‘The Wondrous Cross’.
