Everyone from 17 years old welcome.

In addition, there is extra time to integrate the learned releasing principles in a playful way into your own dance and improvisation. In SRT, guided poetic imagery is used to stimulate the dancer's imagination and promote nuanced experiences of movement. At other times during the lesson, participants learn to perceive their own physical patterns more consciously through hands-on assignments with a partner: the touch helps to release unnecessary tension, so that new sensations, connections and movement possibilities can arise. Attention is paid to, among other things, free breathing, allowing movement, the autonomy of different body parts and the play with gravity and balance. Furthermore, flexibility, effortlessness, multi-directional alignment, and presence in movement and stillness are some of the essential practice areas of SRT. SRT can support any movement style and activity while promoting artistic sensibility and creative development.

The workshop is given in English, if necessary parts will be translated into Dutch.
