Welcome to the Winter Movement Academies

Programme Tenerife 2022


3 weeks' physical and mental training for your body and soul. The Academy is for disabled and non-disabled performers working and creating together. 

This 3 week programme: January 17th - February 4th 2022 will get you in shape and ready for the Spring of 2022.

Here you have the possibility to challenge your own physical skills and to build up a new strong body awareness for your future professional career as a performer.

Tenerife is one of the warmest places in Europe in January and February, so why not give yourself 3 weeks with Sun, Healthy Food and New Possibilities.

I have put together a great team of physical tutors who are ready to guide you in exploring Ballet, Butoh and the GPS Movement System.

The Movement Academy is open to all levels. You can make your own weekly programme, whether these disciplines are new to you, or you are an advanced dancer with or without a disability. 

We will start the morning with Yoga and continue with various workshops. The day will round off in our movement laboratory, where we will explore all your creativity with an artistic, unlimited spirit. 

In the Open Space 2022 we are going to explore the Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca, and the Winter Movement Academy 2022 will end with the creation of a site specific dance movie created together in The Open Space 2022. 

You will have the possibility to follow our daily meditation and mindfulness programme. After lunch you will get your own time to prepare the changes you would like to bring back home after this time out.

The Winter Movement Academy is a great boost of healthy eating, daily exercises and 3 weeks of exploring your own body.

A new beginning for the year.


Create your own personal Clown Solo Script based on the GPS Movement System methods. 

In this LAB you will explore your own personal stories through 12 guided video transcription sessions running over 3 weeks. 

As a part of a small exclusive group of performers, you will be together in the morning classes, exploring movements from your spine through the GPS Movement System. You will create 99 personal movements from your emotional DNA, based on the 16 archetype melodramatic feelings, which will be used for the devising and creating of your script.

Based on your personal 99 movements DNA, created from the 16 melodramatic feelings, you will explore what stories you need to tell during the afternoons over the 3 weeks.

A script based on your personal life experience, transformed into a script with a universal connection.

Speaking from the heart - you will be using the power of the clown nose - expressing the truth of your heart, your dreams and desires.

Facing your world and speaking the voice of what the world around you looks like.

Limited space is available for this LAB.
