Weekends can be enjoyed as an immersion in the Dance Connection methods and exploration of your own expression and movement capacity. The central focus is 'partnering your body' - listening to what it wants - moving with sympathy to its capacity and needs. Dance Connection values our interdependence and interconnection and we will explore: ways of empathically communicating; and dances that connect us to nature, Yin/Yang, The Elements and movement vocabulary & expression.


 To access the Teacher Training Programme you must attend The Dance Journey.

Resilience is influenced by so many things: relaxation time, physical exercise, balance, support, being part of community, expression, and good hydration & food. Many aspects will be explored over the weekend to restore and rebalance, to nourish and build resilience. Not to mention having fun - such a tonic!
