The program embodies the concept of learning through play and exploration. It intertwines play with examining the body, voice, femininity, object performativity, and different movement inversions. 

The Curated Dance Program goes beyond just an activity or plan; it forms a dynamic, cohesive community bound by shared values and principles. Members are connected through the boundless creative potential of the body, expressed through diverse movements and performance practices.

The objectives of the 3-month programme are:

  • To improve physical awareness through a variety of mindful, somatically-informed movement classes
  • To further enrich and challenge your existing art practice, if applicable
  • To discover the notion of learning through play
  • To immerse yourself in a stimulating creative environment
  • To contribute to a new community value that promotes movement as a dialogue
  • To develop your own toolkit for leading, hosting, and delivering a project
  • To physically and spiritually keep your self in on ongoing creative project

The program overview:

Classes take place on Saturdays from 11:00 to 16:00 at Chisenhale Dance Space, E3 5QZ.

This includes a 90-minute somatically informed mindful and inversion movement practice and a 180-minute collective creative lab.

The morning class will be led by a dance artist with a varied, somatically informed bodywork practice. In the afternoon, you'll be stimulated by creative props, whether they're related to imagination, embodiment, spatial concepts, or somatic scores.
