“We are meant to midwife dreams for one another. Success occurs in clusters.” Julia Cameron
Dance Your Art Out is a way to strengthen creative confidence. Do you have a creative project that you want to give time to? Or maybe you’re interested in exploring your own relationship to your creativity? The Webinars include drawing and dancing, inspired by the Open Floor ‘Core Movement Resources’ to broaden our perspective and catalyse our insight.
We make artful decisions all the time on the dance floor. Decisions about direction, tempo, momentum and which risks to take. In ‘Dance Your Art Out’ we will translate these skills into another artistic medium, using easy-to-do art techniques. When we strengthen our artistic habits, our creative aliveness can flourish and have far reaching impacts on our lives, dreams, dinner plates, wardrobes, relationships, passions and problem
solving skills. Whether you love expressing yourself through art or think you don’t have a creative bone in your body, you’re welcome.
A Sunday workshop in London or an online workshop and five fortnightly webinars, including two ‘soiree’ / show’n’tell online hours will make up a term. There will still be small groups to check-in with, which will change every term. The time of the webinars will alternate from morning to evening, hopefully to suit those in different schedules and time zones.
Hopefully you can join for the workshop day as well as the online webinars. However we realise that isn’t always possible, so, if you have participated in a Dance Your Art Out or ARTiculate Your Soul weekend with Sarah Davies in the past you are able to come only for the online portion of the group, however there’s nothing like dancing and seeing eachother in the same room, so if you can, please do come to the day. Or, maybe you just want to dip your toes in and only come to the day, we’ve broken it down to make it as accessible as possible.

Bare Bones is a dance meditation for building muscular intelligence, the ability to be awake and fluid, to articulate the innate symphony of wisdom and expression waiting just below our skin.
We ask our bodies and let them speak:
• What part of me has forgotten how to move?
• Where am I fluid and where am I bound?
• What gestures purr, hum, hurt, hesitate?
• Who do I gravitate towards?
• What propels me to shy away and…
• What makes my body sing?
Our inquiry becomes one of ratio: How much of our huge life force is devoted to keeping ourselves moving in repetitive, habitual patterns? How much is left for creativity, loving connections, the willing surrender to change?
The goal is a body that moves with it all and tells the tale. This is the infinite choreography for Bare Bones.

“Libido is appetite in its natural state” Carl Jung
Libido is an essential part of our body’s natural expression. Complicated one moment, ecstatic the next. Absent or burdened with expectations of past experiences, this energy within and between us comes to the dance longing for freedom.
The intention in Open Floor Movement practice is to mindfully support our full embodiment. In one dance we may feel juicy, radiant and desirable while at other times we battle feeling awkward or shy. It is often challenging to navigate our own experiences and/or the sexual energies around us.
Libido Fundamentals investigates this complex and creative conundrum by using movement to ground, build and explore our sexual energy. We embrace a wider definition of Libido as life force, birth place of creativity, vitality, presence and aliveness. Because sexuality is so often unconsciously acted out or ignored, the exploration of this territory tends to be intense, intimate, liberating and empowering.
Participants can expect to spend each day engaging in mindful movement practice, group sharing and inquiry along with some didactic education. Nudity and actual genital contact are not a part of this workshop.
All genders and sexual orientations are welcome. Welcome solo or in relationship.
Some prior experience of Open Floor or other Conscious Dance Practice is required.
