Analytic-Structural Dance

 (Please bring your music with you on CD)

Fundamental aspects of Analytic-structural Dance are the single spontaneous dance, the communication through body and movement of the dancer, dress chosen by the dancer himself, dance with or without music or with drums, the meditation in the group with or without instructions at the beginning and as meditative dance at the end of a dance therapy session.

The Analytic-structural Dance provides the possibility – beyond verbal speech – for the growth of identity, a free flow of the interplay of body experience, feeling and thinking. The dancer establishes contact both with himself and with the group. Thus he gets the possibility to change and to develop himself.
