Workshops with HVS Movement Studies take educators and dialogue facilitators through the creative process to establish personal, relevent, and specific practices for deepening their work with and through movement.

Enter as you are, we engage in a judgement-free zone.

Exist in the company of like-minded professionals who are interested in living and working creatively and in integrity.

Exit with a clearer assessment of how you are supporting your clients/students with best practice.

The Spiral: Deepening Your Teaching Practice

Movement Educators, join me this May 24 and 25, 2019 as we:

Connect to ourselves: re-examine your motivations for teaching, your role in the studio/community, and reinvest in your creative and teaching practices. Do your actions align with your intentions? Is upholding the legacy of your discipline serving the people you are leading?

Connect to others: hold the space for those who may have experienced trauma (we don’t often know specifically who they are) through your teaching and class/studio culture and climate. Good teaching includes methods for reaching different types of learners, clients with different kinds of life experiences, and serving in different kinds of relationships. Are you creating an inclusive experience?

Connect to the bigger ideas: this includes the role of assessment in the processes of education and business, developing individual and group-class curriculum, and following-through to make the change you intend. Transformation happens when we move responsibly and authentically in community and in consciousness. Are your teaching/professional practices reflecting your ideals? Are they reflecting best practice in teaching?
