If you have any further questions, enquire and we'll contact you.


The workshop will explore a somatic approach to learning the dynamics of your own body. Participants will also be introduced to the vocabulary of movement devised by Rudolf Laban including principles of Space, Harmony and Efforts.

The aim is to develop enhanced expressivity and specificity in the acting body through the exploration of movement observation, analysis and embodiment…and to play!

This work is applicable to actors, movers and dancers although no movement experience is necessary.

The course takes place in the dance studio at The Lir Academy, Pearse street off Grand Canal Quay. You are asked to wear comfortable clothing that you are free to move about in.

A minimum number of participants are required for all workshops to proceed.
