"Dance is a fantastic way to express how we feel, helping us to make sense of the world around us. We not only learning new skills, make new connections and friends, but we also have space to be creative and free. To not judge but to just be."
Emma Dickson, 2020
Dance and movement for wellbeing will hold different meanings to each practitioner, but for myself, it is the opportunity to embrace the world and environment around me and to find creative ways to express who I am within these spaces.
My dance and movement for wellbeing sessions not only offer you the opportunity to engage with dance, but also brings into the space meditation, relaxation, body graphics, self-massage, art making/scoring, aromatherapy and reflection.
These sessions will see me hold the space and guide you through pre-created movement, whilst also giving space for you to express freely and without judgement through movement, your own voice, thoughts and experiences.
Each block of sessions or weekend workshops will have a wider theme that will support and ground you, so that you are able to individual and collectively explore what that theme may mean for you and how it might impact and support you in your day to day lives.
These sessions are inclusive and open to all, seeing me being able to offer session for children, adolescent’s, adults and older adults.
No previous experience of Dance or Movement is required, just an openness to let the music and movement take you on a personal journey.
