What exactly is Movelab?

Check out the ‘creative dance education programme’ coming to Ductac soon

Dance, Activities

Founded in October 2013 and following a successful first season, Movelab is starting the new school year on September 15.

Described as Dubai’s first ‘dance centre focusing on creative dance education’, it’s a novel approach to dance, a learning opportunity which encourages participants to explore the power of a concept they dub Creative Movement.

Still not clear? Here’s how they put it:
‘Creative Movement is a dance class that enables students of all ages to trust their bodies and ideas in order to invent own ways of dancing. It is about discovering dance instead only of copying steps. Participants are encouraged to investigate three fundamental dance concepts: body, space and time. All activities and exercises stimulate creative problem thinking at the same that they improve movement technique (coordination, alignment, balance, strength, flexibility and posture). Students activate both sides of the brain and their whole body, whilst having fun.

‘Whether a kid or an adult, a complete beginner or a professional performer, Creative Movement offers everyone the opportunity to strengthen own movement possibilities, learning strategies, confidence, self-discipline, cooperative behaviour, and positive emotions. Movelab fosters a non-competitive, individual, cooperative and enjoyable environment of physical challenge. What is achieved in the Creative Movement courses can be directly applied to the student's school, work, arts, sports and daily life. 'Inspiring brainy-bodywork'.

Right, sounds good to us. Here’s the deets:
