The study groups

The study group educational programs invite any person, regardless of their age or background, to commit to a long term process of discovery and growth.

In the core of each program, is the understanding that studying the human body has tremendous effect on our lives, on our ability to relate and connect to others, and to our physical and emotional well-being. Together with a fixed group of people, we create a safe space for body inquiry, where each individual is respected and supported according to their pace, needs and goals.

The curriculum of the programs is anchored in the athletic & somatic facets of dance, movement and embodiment. During the process, we expose our students to both experiential and theoretical knowledge.

All our programs are being led by professional experienced teachers and include free access to our weekly jam, q&a sessions and individual feedback talks.

Our programs

Currently we have two different programs:

The Full Program - morning program with the focus on solo work, partnering and creative practice

Full Contact - evening program with the focus on contact improvisation and partner work.

Am I too old for dancing?

How to be with other human beings

Dance as a process of healing

Does dancing translate to real life?

Clémentine Antier

"I have experienced the Movement Lab study group as a unique space for growth, both on a personal and professional level. On a physical level, I developed more strength, endurance, flexibility, resilience, as well as trust in my capacities.

As a group I think we have all deepened our skills of listening, being self-responsible, communicating, expressing, experimenting, and last but not least, to be willing to show up and to connect authentically, with our full being."

"Studying with Matan has been kind of like a reset for me. Besides training various contemporary dance techniques he challenges you to think for yourself. During this program I've discovered the dancer in me in a new way and I am grateful for that."

Lukas Teml

"Studying with Matan teaches me the connection between movement, dance and communication. I love exploring not only "how" to move but also "why". The principles behind his teaching allow me to experience a wider range of possibilities and to step into the unknown with curiosity. In the studio and in life."

Noah Steixner

"We are always moving, but not always aware of it. By exploring how we move, we also open up avenues of freedom that may otherwise stay stuck in routine"
