Looking for a different conference icebreaker?
The boomwhacker event will energise your delegates
Our boomwhacker event is very popular and people always respond very well to it. But for people that have never seen boomwhackers they often have no idea what on earth this icebreaker is all about.
Boomwhackers are colourful plastic tubes that are tuned to a certain note. You can hit them together or hit them against your hand and they create a percussive sound with a definite note.
Our icebreaker and energiser team building events use these tubes to get a group working together, listening to each other, creating together and enagaging with one another. It is a very accessible event and the emphasis is on fun.
Here are some common questions and answers to help you quickly understand.
Delegates are taken through fun rhythmic warm up games to get them working together. They must communicate visually and through music with one another to work as a cohesive group. We then learn patterns which lead to the melody of a well know tune. At the end we bring it all together to create the performance where they will be surprised at how good they sound. A boomwhacker orchestra has been created!
How long does it last?
This works best from around 30 minutes to one or two hours. It’s great as a high impact, short session that leaves the delegates energised and ready for the next part of the day, or to end the day after a more sedentary conference style session.
How many people can take part?
Groups from around five people up to hundreds can take part. It works very well with small groups and allows a more intimate approach but when we get to work with large groups it’s also fantastic as the end result is that much more powerful.
Do we need musical ability?
NO! This event works for any age group, any physical ability, and skill set and best of all no experience is necessary.
