MOVELAB - Creative Movement Courses kick off on Sept 15 at Ductac

MOVELAB Dance Centre

Founded in October 2013 and following a successful first season, MOVELAB is starting the new school year on September 15, 2014. 'Move to think and think to Move' These Creative Movement courses are unique in the UAE. 

MOVELAB is Dubai’s first Dance Centre focusing on Creative Dance Education, a dance opportunity for everyone to explore the power of creative movement. What makes MOVELAB one-of-a-kind is the conceptual approach to dance rather than an imitating approach. 

Creative Movement by MOVELAB

Creative Movement is a dance class that enables students of all ages to trust their bodies and ideas in order to invent own ways of dancing. It is about discovering dance instead only of copying steps. Participants are encouraged to investigate 3 fundamental dance concepts: body, space and time. All activities and exercises stimulate creative problem thinking at the same that they improve movement technique (coordination, alignment, balance, strength, flexibility and posture). Students activate both sides of the brain and their whole body, whilst having fun!

Whether a kid or an adult, a complete beginner or a professional performer... Creative Movement offers everyone the opportunity to strengthen own movement possibilities, learning strategies, confidence, self-discipline, cooperative behavior, and positive emotions. MOVELAB fosters a non-competitive, individual, cooperative and enjoyable environment of physical challenge. What is achieved in the Creative Movement courses by MOVELAB can be directly applied to the student's school, work, arts, sports and daily life. 'Inspiring brainy-bodywork'. 

Monica Antezana, founder and director of MOVELAB, says:  “I firmly believe that creativity is at the centre of human intelligence. I’ve seen time and again through my education and experience in the field of movement that it is possible to develop your creativity via your own movement. Hence, develop your intelligence via your own dance. And it is 100% worth it! I have created MOVELAB based on this principle. I look forward to sharing my passion for creative movement with you.”
