Dancehouse stands on what always was and always will be Aboriginal land. We pay our respects to the traditional owners of this land, the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation, to their elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

Body Mind Centering®

exploring the anatomy & poetics of your bodymind

Body-Mind Centering® (BMC) engages the bodymind through the poetics of moving, touch and experiential anatomy. It is a study of the experienced body in contrast to the objectified body. Classes include guided movement, anatomical information, imagery and directed self-touch, followed by Authentic Movement, shared discussion and journal writing to integrate the material. An embodied approach to learning, living and knowledge making, this practice invites change that is an integration of our physical, psychological, intellectual and imaginative life. This study and practice can be applied to many situations and offers a place of deep investigation for artists as well as professionals engaged in diverse fields of work and research.

Alice Cummins MA, is a dance artist, BMC Practitioner and Registered Somatic Movement Educator & Therapist (ISMETA). She has been researching and teaching her work nationally and internationally for over twenty years. Her process creates an environment of refined somatic awareness and generates engagement and embodied intelligence within a community of shared inquiry. Alice is the director of Somatic Wisdom, a registered training program with ISMETA.
