Some of RealPlay classes promote healing and growth through movement exploration and authentic expression, (RealPlay Transformative Expression) while others cultivate empowering creative expression, enhanced performance skills and integrated movement/theater performance.  (RealPlayMovingTheater.) All groups have some element of these intentions but may have an emphasis on one or the other.
RealPlay MovingTheater
This fun and inventive form of improvisation wakes up your body, fosters a group feeling, and brings out the unique gifts of each person. Improvisations blend movement, sound, characters and verbal play. MovingTheater is surreal or dreamlike, unlike literal scenes or theater games. Stories may be fictional or autobiographical, and range from being touching, hilarious, intense, odd, beautiful...We study the art of expression, develop embodied powerful, fantastical characters and scenes, and tapestries of story.   Your own life stories, tall tales and fantasies are all also fodder as we co-create this innovative movement theater.

In RealPlay Transformative Expression You will move your body, free your voice, expand  creativity and playfulness, and interact with others in meaningful and fun ways.  A supportive atmosphere is cultivated for authentic and personal creative expression, and for liberating the gift in each part of you, even parts you may not have previously known or embraced.  You will receive guidance from Julie and support, appreciation and reflection from others who witness your process.
Exercises help you transform your emotions and life stories with movement, sound, and verbal expression.  Improv structures and exercises stimulate spontaneity and group connection. This is an opportunity to explore new and/or unclaimed parts of yourself, and to move your life stories and issues in creative ways. 
Sacred, Healing, Creative, Therapeutic- Deep Fun!
