"Come on in; the water's fine." Paul Williams
Wednesdays from 8 to 10 p.m.
We train the expressivity in dance with the somatic approach of the Bartenieff Fundamentals with exercises for the deep energy,
fascia and bone connections in the body. In this trimester we experiment with Laban's spatial concepts, with the permeability of inner and outer spaces and the dancers presence in space both in the studio and in public spaces such as courtyard or park. When dancing outside, the senses are used differently. A dialogue develops between the different spaces, the body, the other dancers and the random audience - like in a performance.
Next start of the Basic Training: September 19, 2019
Dance Therapy is an integrative form of psychotherapy using the very old healing power of dance as well as different techniques from art therapy. The goal is to help people finding and exploring their own way to wholeness and liveliness. Through the dance we find and explore hidden feelings and images. On this way we can transform old patterns, habits and destructive beliefs and start to design our live anew.
As a base we use Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies with their observation criteria and the developmental patterns besides knowledge from developmental psychology and Gestalt Therapy.
The basic training course focuses on ones own self development and on experiencing the applied techniques. Therefore it is open for different people, professions and levels of experience.
