Gliding Space | Teacher Training Course
Gliding Space is a movement practice that was developed after many years of research and development in diverse movement, healing and spiritual practices. Its aim is to offer a profound embodied practice and at the same time to acknowledge and integrate all the bodies human kind is comprised by: physical, psychological, emotional, and energy bodies. The practice integrates the profound dance languages of Flying Low (FL), Passing Through (PT), Contact Improvisation (CI), Release Technique (RT), movement coordination of Somatics and Forsythe Improvisation Technologies (FIT) together with spiritual and healing modalities Yoga, Qigong, Thai & Abdominal Massage, Craniosacral, meditation as well as philosophies of Buddhism, Hinduism and Taoism.
Legakis was at the 50 days Flying Low and Passing Through project in 2010 developed and taught by David Zambrano, and ever since he has been deepening his research and teaching across the world in both practices by integrating diverse movement, dance, energy and healing modalities. His main question was “where is the threshold and limit when you cannot call a technique its title because it has started sifting from its original form?”
Legakis has now developed Gliding Space practice that is based on different profound movement styles and languages but shifts and becomes a different practice of its own by integrating and embodying the body, mind, heart and the spirit in unique ways.
Gliding Space is the moment when the dancer becomes one with the actual Space (internal & external); and with heightened mindfulness, the dancer Glides through Space and Time.
It is a profound physical, energetic and spiritual practice that brings you in a state of being in which you transcend through dance, energy, healing and spirituality.
GLIDING SPACE | TEACHER TRAINING COURSE
Welcome to the Gliding Space | Teacher Training Course where we will guide you to experience, embody and integrate in body, mind, heart and spirit. We feel that together can make a difference in the world and co-create a harmonious environment for all people.
Gliding Space | Teacher Training Course is a 4 weeks intensive dance certification course that is open for dancers, dance teachers, dance educators, who have had good dance experience and education and good knowledge and practice in dance.
The course is designed for those who wish to not only to deepen their physical practice but also who are interested to integrate an eastern embodied practices and philosophies into their dance practice to achieve a wholesome experience of a body moving in space.
The aim and vision through this practice is to create a holistic dance training that can transform dance artists in their field of practice and recast the dance education in the 21st century. This integration allows a genuine connection throughout all bodies (Body, Mind, Heart, Spirit) to heal and find harmony within the self, with a relationship and in our communities. Throughout our dance education we pass through a lot of physical, emotional and psychological discomforts, even more severe injuries, that have a great impact in our life. The Gliding Space practice nurtures and addresses all bodies for a holistic communication and integration of all bodies, and furthermore to enhance the metaphysical aspects of the human organism.
The way the practice is taught is by focusing on how to genuinely hold space, create a safe practice/work environment, as well as lead a group of people to a great transformation within a professional dance field. We refer to as “healing” the integration and harmony of all ‘bodies’ of the human being, what in Greek we call Soma, for creating healthy and holistic relationships with the self, with an-other, with communities and with the world.
