1 YEAR PROFICIENCY IN ADVANCED DANCE AND HEALING ARTS

The PADHA Program  is designed by Unity Space for the dance artists who seek to further develop their professional dance career. Dance artists will have the profound opportunity to delve deeper in different movement styles, somatics, embodiment, healing and spiritual practices to achieve high standards of dance and performance and become a pioneer of the 21st Century dance industry.

Even more unique is that the program will be located in 4 different cities, ATHENS, BALI, HONG KONG & KUALA LUMPUR. We will create a dance company touring in different cities and countries to perform, create, choreograph and learn profound new methods and techniques.

This experience will provide a unique and excellent embodied and integrated state of the body, mind, heart and spirit by integrating dance, choreography, performance, with yoga, qigong, martial arts, meditation and mindfulness modalities.

PROGRAM DATES: 01 MARCH 2021 – 09 JANUARY 2022

Note: All Participants need to be committed throughout the full year program

PADHA phonetically sounds like the Greek word PANTA which means everything or always. This brings in mind the Ancient Greek phrase Panta Rhei, as a whole phrase it is “τὰ πάντα ῥεῖ καὶ οὐδὲν μένει” (ta panta rhei kai ouden menei), which means “everything flows, and nothing stays.”

What we are experiencing in each moment of now is something that will change. However, each moment of now is what creates who we are and takes us into a journey of evolution, emotional maturity and spiritual growth. Although we live in a world of impermanence each moment is crucial in experiencing life, relationships and our careers.

In the liminal space of everything and always, impermanence and change, this experience will guide you moment to moment to acquire high standards in dance technique, choreography, performance as well as in somatics, healing and spirituality.

The training will be intense throughout the year with daily training, research and enough time for integration, personal time, contemplation and meditation. We have an excellent and professional team of teachers to bring forth and create dance artists who can and will be the pioneers in the dance industry of the 21st Century.

The program PADHA – Proficiency in Advanced Dance and Healing Arts has specific periods of in depth practice in Dance technique, performance and choreography, Somatics, Healing and Spirituality as well as it includes and integrates several festivals, projects and teachers training courses throughout the full academic year.
