FASCIAL FUNDAMENTALS - Somatic Movement Work

LIVE Online MONDAYS 7 - 9 pm (CET)

Jan. 4 - March 22, except 15.2. & 22.2.21

We will melt into the fasciae with the weight of the body on different balls and rollers with a sense of "wellbeing", then we will stir it up and then rinse it.

At the end of the fascia work, a fascinating new body feeling emerges.

This work is thematically combined with the Bartenieff Fundamentals - as a framework of assessing the possible effects of the fascial work. This brings the chains of fascia in motion in all directions of space with bouncing, stretching and swinging.

Drop-in is possible.

 

Material required: balls and/or roll (rolled blanket/MELT roll).


FUNDAMENTAL DANCE - Bodywork and Dance Training

LIVE Online TUESDAYS 9:30 - 11:30 am (CET)

Jan. 5 - March 23, except 16.2. & 23.2.21

In this dance training we will continue the effective and physically connected movements of the Bartenieff Fundamentals floor work by means of dynamic sequences in space.

Fundamental Dance is a health promoting dance training based on the somatic work of Irmgard Bartenieff and the movement principles of Rudolf Laban.

Open for all levels. Drop-in is possible.


CORE CONNECTIONS - BARTENIEFF FUNDAMENTALS INTRODUCTORY COURSES

LIVE Online WEDNESDAYS 7 - 9 pm (CET)

The Fundamentals developed by Irmgard Bartenieff offer a structured way to enliven the connections in the body. A range of different topics, movement principles and movement patterns are experienced and explored both through fixed exercises and sequences on the ground and through improvisations into space. The clear, effective and at the same time holistic movements have an integrating and centering effect. The increased body connections and movement execution will have an impact on our daily life as well as dance.

Course 1: from January 6 to March 24, 2021

Course 2: from April 14 to June 23, 2021

 

Open for all levels.

Except for the first class, Drop-in is not possible. 

Please book the whole course.

 

In each class there is some theory and a lot of practice.

 

This Introductory course is one of the prerequisites for the EUROLAB Certificate Program in Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies


SOMATIC MOVEMENT & DANCE TO HELP THE IMMUNE SYSTEM'S SELF-REGULATION

LIVE Online THURSDAYS 10 am - noon (CET)

January 7 - March 25, 2021, except on 12.2., 18.2. & 4.3.21

Most movement is good for the immune system, but some are more to the point than others. This somatic movement sequence can assist a flexible immune system regulation. The lymphatic system is one of the systems that support the cells of the immune system circulation, but it can be restricted… In this sequence special emphasis is placed on these restricted body areas. In addition, there is a focus on the function of the breath and on spinal movements. The whole sequence is quite long, so we will do it in parts. In each class we will concentrate on a few movements of the lying floor sequence, as well as doing these parts in standing as a simple dance sequence.

This course is from the 3rd time on a closed group - because the classes will build up. For this reason there is no drop-in, unless you have already attended a course.
