INTRODUCTION & WELCOME
Welcome the group and have a quick re-cap of what happened in Workshop 1.
Aim: To allow the group to re-connect, bond further and have fun.
The Facilitator can use any of the ice-breaker exercises used in Workshop 1, e.g. ball game or pass the clap/energy etc. allowing the participants to gain more confidence in doing them.
names x 3
Participants stand in a circle.
Everyone individually says their name loudly around the circle, so the participants know each other's names.
The Facilitator demonstrates in the middle of the circle: they say one of the participants’ name 3 times loudly and quickly – for example: Ruth! Ruth! Ruth!
The Facilitator explains that the next time they say a name 3 times, the person who has that name must say their name once before the Facilitator says it 3 times.
If the person does not manage to do this, they will now be in the middle and will say various names 3 times until another person must go into the middle.
Do this many times, in order to energise the group, learn names and to bond further.
moving around the space
in 2's, 3's, 4's...
Ask participants to move around the space.
Ask them to pair-up, moving together elbow to elbow at first, whilst finding different ways to move as a pair. The individual pairs should be using the same moves. For example, both swishing arms or both taking giant steps etc. Once they have become confident at moving one way, encourage them to find other ways: a pair swishing arms
might now move as a pair marching. The Facilitator can call CHANGE! to encourage participants to change their movement.
Increase group sizes to 3 or 4 or even 1 large group.
Groups can interact with other groups or “show off” to other groups.
Note: If you do not wish to use physical contact, adapt the exercise. Groups can still move around together in unison as one clear unit.
Start with groups of 3 or 4. Ask each group to stand together.
When you call FREEZE! each group will create instant group freezes in the space, making physical contact or not, as preferred.
Do a demonstration first. Encourage the participants to jump into different shapes.
They are not just standing but being expressive with their physicality.
The freezes do not need to make sense as the participants will have no time to think; they are just creating group shapes.
