SOMMARTRÄNING/FELDENKREIS® FOR DANCERS

5 - 9 August 2019

The Feldenkrais Method® is learning to learn from ourselves to become connoisseurs of our possibilities.

It has become apparent to me that learning dance is not equal to learning efficient self-use, which is why I find it meaningful to share the Feldenkrais Method with dancers.  To help dancers find personal space to approach their art with greater health, wisdom, creativity, articulation, craft, and enjoyment.  

I will aim to teach two Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® (ATM®) lessons each day, with time after each lesson for freeflow improvisation to allow for your nervous system to integrate the new discoveries and a Q&A/sharing session.  These ATM lessons offer a context outside the priorities and objectives of dance for you to explore and discover more collaborative ways of moving that reduce strain and can help you realise more practical ways of moving that can be integrated into your usual dance practice increasing your technique, precision, stability, expressive range, and overall joy of moving.  The aim of Feldenkrais® is to increase your kinaesthetic sensitivity to develop an internal guide that helps your nervous system recognise sounder ways of moving and increase your personal authority to negotiate an improved balance between the principles and values of dance (notions of right and wrong) that you have been taught and the personal choices of moving that benefit your health and well-being.

How can you benefit from moving more collaboratively with yourself rather than operating with the notion that you move parts in isolation?  How does exploring more ways of breathing help to ground you in your feet? What does your pelvis have to do with the freedom of your vision and neck? How do the movement of your ankles support your back better?  How do free shoulder blades benefit the solidity of your balance and your breathing?

Paul Pui Wo Lee is from Hong Kong and grew up partly in Canada.  After graduating from The National Ballet School of Canada, he did a supplementary year of contemporary dance at the Rotterdamse Dansacademie in The Netherlands.  Paul joined IT Dansa in Barcelona after graduation, and then he got the opportunity to dance at GöteborgsOperans Baletten.  A neck injury led him to become a certified practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method®. The method has helped him to become a more able and healthier dancer, and it has led him to understand the purpose of art and what it means to him personally.  Paul is now based in Malmö where he works as a freelance dancer and Feldenkrais® teacher

OBS! Träningen är öppen och utan kostnad för professionella frilansdansare och ingen föranmälan krävs
