kalaanantarupah art center's Dancing Mime workshop-[New Concept 1st Time in the World] -May 10 th to May 21st 2010

Dancing Mime makes your Kid to become Leader

1st time in the world Mr.Thiyagarajakumar is incorporating mime and dance as Dancing Mime concept.

Why do I advocate incorporating mime into dance sessions for Children? There are two main reasons. As in dance, the whole body is used expressively which is a healthy thing for all of us. The other reason is that everyone and especially children need to learn to appreciate silence and the spiritual and emotional peace which this can bring. Our everyday world is full of competing sounds, some of which we want to associate with and others which we wish we could permanently escape. Music is used to manipulate our thoughts and feelings in directions often unknown to us. Large numbers of children with problems are often very sensitive to sound. For such children working in complete silence can be a very powerful experience.

Mime gives children an opportunity to play, explore and invent. Children mime naturally when they play games such as shops, going to the dentist etc. etc. When young children do not have the necessary objects or cannot express themselves they mime. As in dance the children are learning to physically and psychically differentiate parts of the body. Correct breathing and use of the spine are of paramount importance. The breath influences the speed and quality of the movement as well as the rhythm. Correct breathing brings about psycho-physical harmony, an enormous benefit. All our body positions are regulated by how we use our spine. The correct use of the spine will enable walking, lying, sitting, straightening or relaxing the torso, finger, foot or shoulder movements for example to become an expressive means of communication. Our minds
control our bodies.

This art form as another means of using the arts to help children with emotional and learning difficulties. We have all heard of world famous practitioners such as Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd and Buster Keaton of silent movie fame and in more recent times of Marcel Marceau and his stage performances. No doubt we have all seen circus clowns of whom the Russian Grock was one of the greatest. Sadly the white faced, serious clown who never smiled or spoke seems to have disappeared from the scene.

Children need to be encouraged in ways that help them to make their inner life visible without words. A dance and movement session. with mime does just that.
