Bodymind Practice

We work to find a balancing sense of our bodies through breath, movement,
and stretching by using all the tools needed to come to this balancing/liberating
body state (voice, touch, breath, rhythm).

Through several exercises, and by combining several techniques,
we aim to get more conscious/present/aware in the moment, by releasing tension,
and bringing focus on our"own", “unique” movement.We experiment while questioning
our relationship to the space and the others, by always keeping a point of contact
both with the "inside" and the "outside".

Providing different stimuli to each person and group, the practitioner 
encourages people to find through this work their own palette of senses, and movements,
in order to get to a stress-less state of body sensing.
We will use movement improvisations to help us ease muscular tension and use gravity,
breath and body centre, to produce a flowing, liberating body movement.

WORKSHOP// For people interested in dance, theatre and performing// Improvisation, Composition & Performing

A workshop within movement, writing, speaking, performing and imagining, on the possibilities of body and language within time and space, and the relation of body movement and language to imagination.

 

We start with breathing and warm up exercises, by combining different somatic and body-based techniques in order to come to a more conscious/aware state of body sensing.
Continuing, a series of practical tasks and principles within moving, writing, speaking, and performing are proposed, that help us explore the question: 'How can I move, dance, perform, and think differently than I usually do?'. By using our imagination and the rhythm of each body and our collective body, we create choreographic compositions that we share
with the others in the group.

Creative Ballet Class for children  ( different age groups from 4-11 years of age)

This class uses the Vaganova ballet technique and training system for each age group, to teach children the basics of the ballet world in a creative way. Through the structure of a ballet class, children use their imagination, to create their own dance vocabulary. 
In the class, children are also introduced to books and ballet performances danced by acclaimed artists, from around the world. This way, they feel connected to the history of ballet, and to how each ballet movement is developed, which helps them relate to the way movement is created in and through their own bodies.

Movement Class for children 0-3 y.o. , and one parent/carer who wants to find new ways to spend time with his/her children (10.00-11.00)

 

Mothers and children, dance , storytell, bond through movement,while sensing, dancing, playing with colors, and moving to music from all over the world.
For mothers, this is a way to reconnect to their bodies and bond with their children, express through movement, and play  games that speak to their " inner" child. Children, learn, sense , experience, dance, and have fun next to the comforting mother touch. 

In this class we don't expect children to "DO" , rather, we focus on PARENTS doing and enjoying, and this way we are  giving children different stimuli to intrigue their senses. The beauty of the class is that we have children from 13 months to 5 years of age, so the younger ones learn from the older and the older ones get confident about themselves. 
The reason children and parents enjoy this class so much, is because in this class BOTH parents AND children interact, move, improvise and dance together!
