Feel the rhythm and move, express, communicate. Let loose, make your body talk & just get happy.
In 5 days / 2+2 hours a day. 12-20 participants only. Experience not required.
€245,- per person, plus stay to be arranged from €98,- a person / a week.
Passionately curious, like tango. But in a farmer’s shed & a forest instead of at a parquet floor. Individual, communication, story, challenge fun, instead of fixed couples & passes.
Play to feel free. Away from too much judgment. Discover and use the power of other participants and of the group, net to your own. (Bennie Bartels)
If you like, you can start a day with an hour of Feldenkrais, a proven method of physical and mental exercises that strengthen connections between consciousness and feelings and thereby our innate ability to learn and grow. More on Feldenkrais.
Every day we’ll create a small choreography in two workshops, with techniques from modern dance, contact improvisation, movement theatre and Argentine tango.
Public Performances will be given halfway and at the end of the week. The way to these is more important than the results.
At Creuse Nature, this comfortable 4* naturist holiday centre at the heart of France. Naturism aims a better relation with nature: your body reveals your own nature. When weather allows, naturists tend to be naked, to come closer to themselves and communicate on a more equal basis. Being naked is not obligated, apart from the swimming pools. We will dance dressed.
I regard the proces, experience, learning and proper group dynamics as the most important assets for the participants. Let me take care of the performances and that everybody feels at ease in it. (Bennie Bartels)
Bennie Bartels, professional dancer, experienced tango teacher and Feldenkrais master, is the leader of this Dance week.
