About this event

This fortnightly course is for anyone who wishes to explore their love of dancing in more depth with the support of a dedicated group.

The first session is open for newcomers to try, after this the group is closed for the term. The cost of this individual session is £15, and if you join the group this would be deducted from the full cost (see below).

Numbers are limited for this group so it is worth booking in advance if you know you wish to join us.

The intention of this group is to provide a safe container for explorations into the medicine of movement, giving us a chance to really discover more of our individual dances in conversation with the dance we share between us. In a closed group we are able to build the trust that enables more freedom of expression and adventuring together. Over the term we can take a journey with each other and really call on the support of the practices of Movement Medicine that invite us into more of who we truly are. Some of the places we might visit on this journey are:

– The simple practice of listening to and truly inhabiting our physical bodies (we will return to this place each week, it is the bedrock of all we do).
– The movement of and between our micro awareness, internal landscape, and macro awareness, all that is outside of us.
– The elements, earth, air, fire and water that we can call on as a resource and a place to remember that which we are made of.
– Finding the place where we can move freely between being in our own dance and being in sync and connection with others.

This is an ongoing journey together, the group continues with a good core of people all the way through and then some shifts and changes each term, keeping it alive. The group is very community minded and warm and welcoming to newcomers, a real place of resource.

Full course dates, autumn term 2019:
15 & 29 Sept, 13 & 27 Oct, 10 & 24 Nov, 8 & 22 Dec, all 6.30 – 9.15pm

Cost: £104 if booked with payment by 22 August, £120 thereafter

Visiting Dartington Hall

At our 1,200 acre estate, based in South Devon, there’s plenty to explore – from the natural beauty of the grounds, to our visitor attractions and year-round events programme. You can also make a stay of it with our historic hotel or campsite, and enjoy award-winning food and drink in our cafes and restaurants.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
