Inner Dancer Mask Making with Dayl Workman
January 21, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
We are instinctively drawn to images of the face where the “movements of the Soul” are revealed. In today’s workshop, the mask-maker will freeze a moment of this inner story revealing the natural strengths and talents of the dancer within. Through the creation of the mask, senses and intellects of body, mind and spirit are involved and a deeper understanding who you are as a dancer/mover will be discovered.
Dayl’s studies in Transpersonal Art Therapy lead her to discover that creative expression is innate in all humans and is an important exercise in the path to Soul healing. Join her in this workshop as she holds you through the exploration of movement and mask-making to deepen your dance experience.
Dayl’s diploma is in Transpersonal Art Therapy. This type of work goes beyond the mask we wear when we dance and brings back healing messages from the soul. The mask that we create is the creative expression of the soul, and having a visual representation of it can be used to inspire our own dance journey.
Anyone who attended our 2016 Diwali performance of the Ramayana will recognize Dayl as the detestably alluring demon princess Shurpanaka! In 2017’s performance she poured herself into playing the jealous stepmother Kaikei. This woman knows how to enter a character, explore it, and seek its soul message.
Dayl’s passion for tribal belly dance extends to the love of community, bringing people together to move and dance the same “language”. She believes that creativity is a vehicle for good health, and what better way than to express it than through the art of dance! Dayl creates a great space in which to learn, injecting humour and encouragement in the class environment whilst catering for all learning styles.
