Where we teach almost every week

freedomDANCE with Nick Hobbs

Istanbul | Thursdays | 19:15-21:30

Regular sessions: I run FreedomDANCE sessions most Thursday evenings from 7:15pm to 9:30pm at Tiyatro7 (Alara İş Merkezi, Osmanlı sokak No:11/3, Kazancı Yokuşu, Gümüşsuyu Mah., Taksim). For more info, please check Facebook: ‘FreedomDance Anadolu & Slow Yoga’ or write to dance[at]voiceofshade.net.

Each session is unique, with different themes, music, and teaching. The core focus of the sessions is on what is variously called conscious movement, movement & meditation, and ecstatic dance. My own version includes working with deep principles of improvisation, spontaneous choreography, presence, soul psychology (working with the imagination, archetypes, rituals, animist ideas and myth) and, sometimes, performative aspects of improvisation. I work with extraordinary music and a notion of sustainable energy. The work is non-judgmental and about expanding our individual possibilities through movement, opening and expression, and it is inherently self-therapeutic - enabling us perhaps to better handle our psychosomatic knots. I also aim to link movement, breath and voice so that our breath and voices can be more embodied and free. We move a lot and I aim for each session to be exciting and challenging.
