creative learning

 

We run a wide range of workshops and courses in schools, colleges and universities, as well as courses for actors and musicians. Whether we are working with children, senior citizens, young people in conflict with the law, doctors, or performers, our approach is strongly rooted in an idea of the moving body as a potent vehicle of expression - as poetic beyond words - and in the power of live music.

For more information and to see how we can tailor a workshop to you specific needs contact us

See Performing Medicine for courses for medical students and health professionals
