Classes where we teach

Community freedomDANCE

Cambridge | sundays | 16:30 - 19:00

This event is an opportunity for our dance to come together as a community and invite our friends and family to join us.

It is a chance for everyone to get a direct experience of dance as a collective journey that builds the sense of connection and mindfulness skills.

Join us to have a taste of freedom and take that sensation into your life!
• Freedom to move your body without learned steps or routines
• Freedom to let go of comparisons, judgments and criticisms
• Freedom to be yourself and connect with others

It’s a free event. Any donations to help to pay for the venue will be accepted with gratitude.

About the teacher:
Alex Svoboda, Ph.D.: The liberating power of dance seems to be flowing naturally out of Alex and spreading to those who come to his classes. Alex founded freedomDANCE, a school of dance meditation and conscious movement in 2009 and is teaching around the world and training other teachers.

What is this about?

freedomDANCE sessions are not dance classes as such.

Yes, we move to the music. Yes, we sweat. Yes, we dance with commitment and abandon…

And yet, what we do is much more elusive, subtle and mystical than perfecting dance routines. We are establishing connections. And our dance floor is the nexus of these connections.

This on-going group will be dedicated to honouring the connection between what we practice physically on the dance floor and what we begin to practice in our relationships in life. We will be celebrating the dance’s ability to change our life for the better!

We will dance fully in a company of the same people and we will invite the best things that the dance offers so generously into our everyday life.

Sunday Sweat (Alex Svoboda covering for Kate Iwi)

London | sundays | 18:00 - 20:00

This time Alex Svoboda is covering for Kate Iwi.

Kate’s about words:

This class is about freeing up your dance, exercising all of your body, providing an outlet to express yourself, relax yourself and help you to feel more alive. It requires absolutely no ability, grace, skill, fitness level or cool moves and we have dancers of all ages. It’s a great way to shake off your day, week or weekend - like a clean out for the coming week.

Classes start very gently, with time for stretching and getting the body moving at your own pace. The music will take you gradually into a kind of wave of activity - from the first rhythm, ‘flowing’, through the more percussive ‘staccato’, getting faster until we hit ‘chaos’, then dropping into the lighter ‘lyrical’ music before finally sinking into the meditative sounds of ‘stillness’. We often go through two waves of the 5 rhythms during the class. Each wave can be quite cathartic, getting out pent up feelings and energy and leaving you relaxed and refreshed.

There’s instruction and exercises but no specific steps, you don’t even have to follow the instructions if they don’t feel helpful, what’s most important to come along and be yourself.

Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move in and don’t mind getting sweaty in. Bring a bottle of water and most people wear bare feet but soft soled dance shoes are also welcome.

Just a few minutes walk from Elephant and Castle tube station (Bakerloo and Northern Line) or a slightly longer one from Waterloo.
