Dance Movement Year Journey
Dance, Move, Connect
Dance, Move, Connect
For anyone wanting to deepen the compassionate and creative connection with themselves and others through dance and movement - the embodiment of a life well lived! This is a stand-alone year and can be the pre-requisite for embarking on a second year of teacher training. A commitment is required for this self-development year, 12 weekends, one per month (for part attendance, please enquire).
The Dance Pathway
To open & stimulate pathways to a life well lived through dance, movement and connection, employing the principles of interdependency and interconnection.
We work with self awareness through the language of music and movement to give the opportunity to realise our authentic connection, expression and communication.
The learning process is experiential and somatic, an exploration of your own life journey through dance, movement and communication. Sharing is based on the Circle Way and communication is based on the principles of empathic communication and reflective listening.
The Dance pathway is geared to help you partner your body and listen, learning to recognize your sensing system: the gut instinct/intuition; emotional indicators; physical indicators, instincts and sense of well-being. Exploration of Laban’s analysis of movement gives vocabulary for expression. Verbal communication will be grounded in embodiment.
