Exercises A

Walking around the room A: we try to stop altogether

Walking around the room B: we try to start altogether

Walking around the room C: we all try to walk in the same rhythm

Energy “catchers”: mimicking the action of holding an imaginary energy ‘ball’, we send it across to each other by clapping one hand on the other and directing the motion to whomever we wish to send the energy to – we mix it up by changing directions back and forth
