Concept

All & Beyond is process oriented program that is centred around the athletic & somatic facets of dance, movement and embodiment. Cultivating body intelligence and physical expression and developing a self and group practice are the core of the program.

The year-long program is a professional training that is open for any person regardless of age or background. A basic previous experience in the field of dance or embodiment is required.

The program aims to help each individual develop their physical intelligence and refine artistic skills in dance and performing art. The unique blend of different teaching modalities and pedagogical approaches within the Movement Lab will enable each student to gain extensive understanding and experience in the following: contemporary dance, movement based exploration methods, contact improvisation and partnering, performance practice and stage experience.

Besides that, the program supports cultivation of presence through touch and the development of non-verbal communication skills - a process that provides a robust foundation necessary for future engagements in the field of embodiment and touch based healing modalities.

The Program’s Structure

The program constitutes three core modules and one optional module.
The mandatory modules are being taught 1.5 hours per week and lasts for 36 weeks. All the mandatory modules are built as a gradual process of accumulation of knowledge and skills.

The optional module takes place every week for 2.5 hours (throughout the entire program) and will be guided by rotating guest teachers. Each participant is require to attend for a minimum of 12 hours in total (4 times), with the possibly to attend as much as one wishes.

Together all the modules are an in-depth process oriented learning experience.
