Alumni-Workshop for Dance Therapy 2019

Are you looking for new prospects as a professional dancer? Then we cordially invite you to our upcoming Alumni-Workshop in „Dance Therapy" 2019 at the Palucca University of Dance Dresden!

This workshop has been designed for international alumni of the Palucca University of Dance Dresden who are looking to further develop their professional profile as a dancer and who enjoy working closely with clients in a therapeutic setting. Instructed by Cornelia Widmer, Dipl. choreographer, dance teacher and dance therapist as well as musically led by Walter Widmer (Dipl.-Ing.) on the violin, this workshop will provide basic knowledge in theoretical sessions while at the same time will focus on several practical units.

As a unique feature of this workshop, all practical units will be musically accompanied by Walter Widmer on the violin. This aims to promote a dialogue between the music and the individual movement of the workshop participants within their immediate environment. This workshop focusses on the self-awareness of your own body – an element that plays an important role in the field of dance and movement therapy. In order to help you develop a direct approach to this professional field, this workshop supports the escape from commonly expected movements and rather creates space for improvisation that is closely related to your immediate environment and personal emotion. Will you join in? Participation is limited so make sure to reserve your seat today.

Date: 11th - 13th October 2019

Location: Palucca Hochschule für Tanz Dresden, Studio: TBA
