THE NEW JERSEY CENTER FOR MIME

EXPRESSION AND IMAGINATION

CONTACT US ABOUT OUR WORKSHOPS!

Yass Hakoshima’s workshops offer training in mime technique, body awareness & effective expression.

Through carefully designed physical and mental exercises of Eastern and Western origins you will learn the most important basic elements of body awareness, dynamics and function. These will give your body strength, flexibility and correct breathing. You will begin to use your body as a whole to express your thoughts and feelings more freely and be able to use communicative skills as well as your physical expression.

Based on this knowledge of body awareness, the easy step-by-step practice of classical mime technique will help you to gain self-confidence. At the end of the workshop you will be able to construct and present your own short message of body language.

A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY

To gain physical and mental strength and develop new skills in order to improve self-confidence and effective expression!
