In this course we will explore our bodies to find the way (different for every person) that develops trust and peace in us while moving. We’ll train to control our bodies, in order to use them in our favour.
We will use the time to develop our sixth sense: the proprioception. Do we know where’s our foot placed without looking? Can we always sense that? Or, do we know where are others with whom we share the space? Can we guess by sensing them without looking directly? If we’re conscious of our own body, and we develop control with it, then we will have the chance of taking responsibilities. If we wake up our consciousness enough to be able to be precise about the space that we fill physically, we contribute to a safer and better environment. It’s a win-win: as individuals we stop being strangers within ourselves, and as a collective, we gain space for communication and care.
We’ll work to develop consciousness of who we are, responsibility within the space and whoever is around, and confidence about our strong and weak points. We’ll aim to find a way to interact with each other and each different environment without needing words. We’ll prepare our bodies to be available all the time, by discovering the incredible things what we can expect from them.
Training our bodies in a safe and kind environment, we can reach synergies, mutualisms, and exponential growths for the scenes we do, at the same time that we’ll gain welfare within ourselves.
The only pre-requisite for this course is to be curious about the journey that’s discovering oneself. No need to be familiar with dance: whatever level you think you are, you’ll be completely welcomed… So: shall we move together?
