18 — 25 May
Body Language as an art…
Dance and Intuitive Movement
In this workshop you will develop your own dance in a free spirit and explore your creativity through movement.
Through various improvisation suggestions, you will become more assertive in the way you move ; your body and your soul will take you into playful and expressive dance improvisations.
Wake up your body, wake up your dance ! Feel free, dare to dance, dare to be the dancer ……allow to be danced.
In the simplicity and poetics of movement, you will create an imaginary personal space, allow yourself to explore singular, intoxicating and sensual rhythms, and feel the palpitation of your inner dancer…
Everyone ages 18 and above is welcome, including health workers, cultural, education, art professionals, and anyone interested in personal development, creativity, health prevention and personal support.
Various means of physical preparation will be offered :
Relaxation/Body Care: a more relaxed body will better position itself and find ease. We relax the body as we warm it up and loosen it. Our ability to listen and the development of our intuition will enhance our resourcing and self-healing.
Positioning/Intuitive Listening and Micromovements : Through the observation of our axes, the perception of our points of support, our stability centers (balance, imbalance), and our muscle chains, we let the natural circulation of movement run wild. Our gesture gains in texture, presence and tactility.
Collective Improvisations: Through improvisation, ritualized dances, open and expansive suggestions, we express our deepest being.
Musical development : We pay particular attention to the connection between dance and music/rhythms. The focus is placed on the pleasure of interpretation.
“Our inner child and deep being come to life within a dimension of the emptiness and wholeness of the danced movement. Our united body and spirit converse through the boundless integration of life movement.”
To express our inner being step by step in listening to oneself, to trust the intuition of the “not wise”, to the voluptuousness of the movement, while reinforcing the presence and the concentration of each one.
Choreographic and musical development :
We will pay particular attention to music and rhythms, to their perceptions so that the dance comes to work with the whole group based on guided proposals. Finally, in a more demonstrative form, the emphasis will be on the dimension of memory, always in the pleasure of movement.
Invitation to speech and symbolization :
To work and deepen the dimension of communication, from relationship to other, moments of exchanges and feedback will be proposed.
