Dance Body Self-Efficacy – Workshop Series for Women

We are LA MOVE – in motion. Do you want to discover yourself in dance, learn something new about yourself and share your life experiences with others?

LA MOVE is a practice of dancing, moving, listening, storytelling and creating together. We will explore individual body knowledge and share body stories to learn with and from each other.

Each month we will focus on a different body theme and explore it anatomically, through dance, biographically, by drawing
and modeling.

18.09.2022 – Body Shapes

Our feet are the focus of the first workshop. We will explore walking as well as standing and will look at how our feet carry us through life.

16.10.2022 – Body center

In the second workshop, we turn to our belly and pelvis. Connected to this are topics such as menstruation, childbirth or losing and gaining weight. Sensitively and in a caring way, we explore how our center moves us.

20.11.2022 – Sensory Body

In a variety of ways we will explore our sense of touch and focus on feeling. We will turn our awareness inward and become interested in what we see when we close our eyes.

11.12.2022 – Body Stretching

In the fourth workshop, we would like to spread our bodies generously through space and explore the question of how we can create, take and give space. In doing so, we will use breathing to expand the body.

15.01.2023 – Pleasure Body

In the last workshop we celebrate our desiring and lustful body and dance ourselves energetically into ecstasy. We empower ourselves and empower each other.

11.02.2023 – Body Celebration

The final big LA MOVE party! How to connect our moving bodies in a rapturous dance. Sparkle!
