Authentic Movement cultivates a contemplative frame of mind, clarity of perception, and movement that is personally enhancing. You may experience Authentic Movement as meaningful play, full of fun. At other times you may experience intense feelings and receive helpful insight into the wisdom of your own body. For our first hour we will practice Authentic Movement, usually done with eyes closed and attention directed inward. We then step from this authentic, more internal place into the eyes-open practice of Conscious Dance. As Rachel Phillipe describes Conscious Dance, “There are people swaying, rolling, leaping, singing, skipping, stretching… dancing. Their humanity expressed so freely, so fully, is a siren song to my soul.”

Authentic Movement is a simple form of self-directed movement, usually done in the presence of at least one witness.  The particular relationship between mover and witness, in moving and being seen by another, creates a powerful framework within which this work takes place.

Authentic Movement’s original practitioners integrated Jung’s concept of active imagination with modern dance movement improvisation:

  • as a meditative, spiritual practice that integrates body and mind for increased access to consciousness.
  • as artistic support, to connect with creativity and creative process, un-blocking and opening to new ideas.

Conscious Dance, also known as Ecstatic Dance, serves as “a vehicle for self-expression, discovery and healing. Unguided, unstructured, free-form felt movement is being used as a conduit into embodiment, into consciousness beyond thought. Through creating a safe, nonjudgmental and uninhibited space people are able to bypass the thinking mind entirely and move deeply into the feeling body, the healing body, the knowing body. 

“It is an opportunity to simply Be. Be with yourself in motion to music within community. The group synergizes a safe container for everyone to feel and express fully whatever is present for her that day. Those attending an ecstatic dance are everyday normal people who are open to experimenting with and expressing themselves through dance.” – Rachel Philippe

Eva Alewa Geueke has lead dance classes and guided events for 30 years now. She is a dancer at heart, as well as a professionally trained Dancer, who has always been interested in meaningful, authentic and transformative dance without being heady. Dance for her is a universal language that opens the heart, frees the spirit and brings peace, joy, health, creativity and positive transformation to the individual and therefor to the world. Eva loves to learn choreographed dances but feels that needs to be balanced with the expression of one’s own personal dance language that comes out of oneself, a movement language that does not need to be judged, criticized or remembered. It lives beyond right and wrong, beautiful and ugly in the glorious moment of one’s authentic truth. Eva learned about the transformative force of Authentic Movement as well as Contact Improvisation in her formative years as a dancer in the New York’s Improvisational Dance scene.

Enjoy a wealth of wonderful techniques to warm up the body, including massage and gentle joint mobilization. We help each other to start the dance feeling happy in the body, open in the joints. Try movement games that will stretch your movement horizon and bring you the joy of creative exploration. Adding contact with other people further expands the scope of possibilities!

We trust the divine flow that happens when we put our busy head aside and simply, freely dance with another person or with the floor itself as a partner.

Contact improvisation is an international movement art where two or more people dance together sharing physical contact. Through contact with another dancer you gain many more movement possibilities: partnering, rolling, lifting, pushing, pulling and guiding. As this is an improvised dance form, you can choose to move slow and gently with your partner or make it more acrobatic and athletic. Eva will adjust to all levels and teaches safe and healthy Contact Improvisation!
