What happens in an Open Floor Dance session? These Conscious Dance (also called Expressive Dance) classes are inclusive, interactive sessions for people of all ages and abilities. Music is typically used during a class, and at times there may not be music, according to the needs of the group during the session. On the dance floor, we move and include all that there is in the room, in the world, in our lives.
Empathic Skills Training
This one-day training gives front-line staff the tools to deliver effective emotional support to the people in their care. Participants will learn about the relationship between people's fundamental needs and emotional expression through a mixture of discussion-based and experiential exercises.

WHAT OTHERS SAY
"Adam has a strong empathic presence and can very capably hold space for experiential learning, running workshops in which people can deepen their understanding and strengthen their skills of empathy."
Devaraj Sandberg, Therapist and Workshop facilitator
"I enjoyed two sessions of dance led by Adam. I found his presence attentive, his instructions clear and delivered gently. The spoken pair work exercise was very interesting and I thought the music a good variety. I hope I can attend more in the future."
Janet Adams, Dance Movement Therapist
"Adam's instructions were spacious and I felt the permission to be wherever I needed to be. I enjoyed the class and had some deep insights during the class. He has a good awareness of the group energy and how to guide it gently and confidently."
