Invitation to Contemplative Movement Practice

All are invited all to Contemplative Movement Practice with Nicola Visser.

Please do join an introductory movement class that draws on the practices of Authentic Movement and Contemplative Dance. It is a simple movement practice with the potential for great depth. The movement practice is characterized by a special quality of taking care, of listening to others and paying attention.

When the movement was simple and inevitable, not to be changed no matter, how limited or partial, it became what I called ‘authentic’ - it could be recognised as genuine, belonging to that person. There is necessary an attitude of inner openness, a kind of capacity for listening to one’s self…It is made possible only by concentration and patience… The core of the movement experience is the sensation of moving and being moved…” Mary Starks Whitehouse.

The experience is quiet and contemplative. No previous dance experience or ability is necessary. Please wear clothes that are comfortable for movement. 

If you enjoy this form of movement there will be a regular practice group meeting once a week at Godsbanen dance studios. You are warmly invited to join. See you there!

Nicola Visser

"I am a dancer and teacher, recently arrived in Aarhus from Cape Town South Africa. There I taught contemporary movement at the university and directed a dance company for people with and without disabilities. My main focus of interest has recently been captivated by Authentic/Contemplative Movement practice, and has become the base of self-development work as well as a resource of art work."
