SEED YOUR DANCE

THE SEED - A 5 WEEK EXPLORATION

The acorn does not know a mighty tree exists within it…It simply grows.

 

‘THE SEED’ – This 5 week intro course will gently strengthen and align your body using your innate body/mind/spirit potential. I have spoken at great length of the importance of understanding the roots of a cultural dance – but first and foremost there must be The Seed from deep within you.

In this course we will be exploring:

  1. The very seed of powerful, aligned, balanced, nuanced movement.
  2. The genesis of Egyptian movement traditions and how to seed this into your own experience and expression….
  3. Ancient eastern healing breath/body work to further awaken and deepen your connection with the Elementals.
  4. The latest bioscience findings into body/mind/movement.

You will discover your innate body schema, offering an opportunity to explore a deeper more profound source of movement.   After all, you can only get to a destination if you know from whence you start.  You will also discover how each of the above forms a symbiotic relationship to finally convey the dynamic and authentic experience we seek in our dancescape.

In time, this applied knowledge will transform not only how you move, but how you experience movement.  It almost goes without saying that it also offers amazing holistic health and healing opportunities, regardless of your starting base.

This course would also benefit more experienced levels, provided you are willing to take that step back to explore new challenges and new possibilities to the exclusion of previous experience/expectations.   Course starts August 12, 2.15p.m. Classes are small, intimate in a private, purpose built studio.   Please contact me via facebook message https://www.facebook.com/elemental.egyptian.dance  with any queries you may have.

A few testimonials from students: .

…………”Thank you Juliet, once again for bringing the gift of Egyptian dance into my life, and with it all the wonderous shifts in my awareness and my energy flow.  Every class is a feast I look forward to experiencing…. Learning dance from you has been a revelation. I have always loved to dance.  Movement and music always excites me, but you have awoken me to so much more.  The connection of dance to my spirit and soul. I can’t thank you enough for that”.         D.H

“Juliet has transformed my life and way of thinking, in mind, body and spirit. An amazing talent, so knowledgeable on all levels, uniquely special and has saved me from myself and old ways with respect to poor posture and poor exercise regimes after many injuries in the gym with instructors who have little training and little care. Juliet has helped me overcome old injuries and is completely passionate and graceful in her instructions. In Juliet’s gorgeous studio she has the ability to transcend time and take you to a beautiful place and you leave feeling reborn! Thank you Juliet. A truly beautiful lady!   NTD x”
