La Movement Medicine Danser pour se libérer

What is Movement Medicine?

A guided free dance
Freeing movement
Intention and transformation
Dancing for yourself

Meditation in motion

Movement Medicine, formerly known as Danse Médecine, is a free dance practice. I see free dance as a fusion of dance and meditation. It's a form of bodily expression that develops self-awareness through movement.

A guided free dance

La danse est libre dans le fait qu’il n’y a généralement pas  de mouvement à reproduire, pas de chorégraphie. Pour autant, cela ne signifie pas qu’il n’y a pas de cadre. L’enseignant-e donne une structure à l’atelier par sa guidance (les instructions) et sa musique.  Je propose des intentions, des explorations et des inspirations qui soutiennent et orientent le mouvement. Autant d’invitations à essayer de nouvelles manières de sentir et ressentir son corps.  Il s’agit de sortir des schémas et habitudes répétés inconsciemment.

A space in which I can take the freedom to dance for myself. Forgetting all that's going on around me (even the music) to explore my world. It's a time and a space for myself.

According to its creators

In this video, Y'Aacov and Susannah Darling Khan, co-creators of Movement Medicine, explain what it's all about with some footage filmed during a workshop.

A movement towards freedom

1. Authenticity

Freeing our dances from value judgments: no good movement, just the one that's there. The dance I can dance today. It may not be as aesthetic as I'd hoped. But it's right.

2. Pleasure

Improvise in a real dance hall, without worrying about what others around you might think. An interlude in a life that's 100 miles an hour and always with its head on the handlebars.

3. Intention and transformation

Dance my dance until it changes. The movement of the body induces a movement in the mind. Thespace we create and occupywithin ourselves changes the way we look at the world. Movement Medicine is just a dance, but it's also a tremendous space for personal transformation.
