New workshops starting in January
There's a chance to brighten up 2017 by starting a new hobby and making friends at Artrix. From 10th January onwards, the Bromsgrove arts venue will be running a wide selection of courses and workshops for adults and children.
A brand new Pilates Mat Work for adults class starts on Wednesday 11th January. The new class, which is suitable for beginners, is ideal for anyone wishing to build their core strength and stability.
For parents or carers with young children, there’s Big People Little People Moving Together. This new workshop is for grown-ups and their little ones and will include a variety of movement, dance and creative play. For younger babies and toddlers, Sensory Play Sessions for Babies and Toddlers, which are suitable for ages 8 weeks to 24 months start again on Friday 6th January.
Future stage stars aged 6-9 can take a bow at the Artrix Youth Theatre on Tuesday evenings. There is also a senior section of the Youth Theatre, with sessions on Saturday afternoons for 10-16 year olds would-be actors.
For young singers aged 5-9 there’s a Little Songstars Showchoir and a Songstars Junior Showchoir which caters for ages 10-16. For adults aged 16+ there is a Songstars Adult Showchoir which is a lively and friendly choir which welcomes new members. All choir sessions run on Thursday evenings with a chance to learn great songs and take part in fun performances.
The Adult Ballet Beginners Class is an excellent introduction to ballet for those who have never tried it before and the intermediate class includes some pointe work, floor exercises and barre work. The Belly Dancing class is for all levels and although it is low impact, it helps build core strength and increases flexibility.
TC Peppercorn, Artrix’ Engagement and Learning Co-Ordinator said ‘These courses and workshops offer a fantastic opportunity to anyone who fancies a new challenge to kick off 2017 in style. We hope that people will come along and try a taster session before booking’
