During his session we explore somatic movement and dance practice. We work with body-mind approaches to sense one’s inner movement; focus on nourishing our connection with oneself, our creative potential and its expression to let our souls and bodies to express through movement and voice.

SOMATIC is the ability of the human being to perceive through sensations that occur inside his/her body.
Soma (from Greek: body) is the living body; breathing, moving, sensitive and perceived body. From its potential the moving body becomes an instrument of knowledge.

Monica is a dance artist, performer, teacher and maker working in the UK and internationally. She has trained as a dancer and theatre performer.
