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.”
