Taking time for rest in and out of the dance studio can have many benefits. It can help our bodies recover physically from overuse and help prevent injuries. It provides a much-needed brain break, giving our minds time to process information we have received and prepare to receive more. It can help us overcome creative blocks that keep us from working at our full potential. It can encourage new ideas and fresh perspectives, fostering creativity and improving our artistry. It can help us reignite our passion for dancing, educating, and choreographing.
Creative rest consists of purposeful and thoughtful exercises and activities designed to give us the time, space, and intention to:
- Reconnect with our bodies, restoring our physical well-being and refreshing our energy levels;
- Refine our teaching, learning, creating, and performing practice;
- Reignite our creativity and artistry;
- Reflect on where we’ve been and where we want to go, in our careers and in our lives;
- Restore our enthusiasm, passion, and love for the art of dance.
Each of the 15 activity listings in this collection includes a description of the activity's objective, detailed instructions for completing the activity, and reflection questions. The activities consist of gentle movement practices, guided movement meditations, and creative improvisation explorations created to help your find refreshment and restorations physically, mentally, emotionally, and creatively. They are designed for dancers, dance teachers, choreographers, and anyone who is interested in movement and creativity. While the activities can be adapted for movers of most ages and skill levels, they are best suited for those age 12 and up.
