About The Spring Seedling
The theme for the first Spring Seedling event will centre around the Heart, Ground and Rhythm, alongside Joy. We will seek to explore different ways in which we can bring joy to movement, in all its different forms.
Through the workshop exchanges, we will be exploring different ways in which we can access different parts of the body, bringing awareness, energy and joy of movement to each. We will consider how the ground can be used to support us in our movement and growth. We will explore the role of the heart and rhythm within, and for, the joy of movement. Throughout the course of the day, we will seek to find new entry points into this year’s theme, always opening ourselves to emerging possibilities, perspectives and opportunities presented by the workshop leaders, as well as the participants themselves.
Through the workshop exchanges, you will be able to explore your own quality of movement and learn how you too can use movement for support. From using dance and movement to support yourself, to helping others to provide support for themselves in a range of contexts. You will gain insight into how you can use movement and somatic practices for self-care, growth and wellbeing.
The sessions are a welcoming and open environment, approached first and foremost with a sense of curiosity and exploration. Guided by experienced somatic practitioners, participants will be invited to make new discoveries and connections throughout the course of the day. It is designed to be an event for existing practitioners of dance and somatic movement, as well as those who are new to the field, but wish to develop their understanding and experience.
Structure of the Day
The Spring Seedling will consist of three workshops, each lasting 1.5 – 2 hours. Each workshop will be led by an experienced practitioner, who will be using their individual practice and methodology to explore this year’s theme.
The event will conclude with a final exchange session, in which practitioners and participants will be invited to engage in a time of shared reflection, from the perspectives of practice and of the theme, and finally, to reflect on what was achieved during the course of the day itself. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions and share thoughts for further consideration and enquiry.
The day will consist of three different workshops. Currently confirmed workshop leaders are Dr Anna Dako and Martina Polleros.
Further details of the final workshop leaders will be shared soon, alongside details of each workshop session.
