Movement Angol’s educational programme encourages the process of creative exploration, structured within an experiential framework to facilitate the process of learning, an alternative approach to discovering knowledge and understanding about the self, others and the environment, using movement and dance as the basic tools of exploration to unlock and channel the creative energies that exist in every individual.

 An embodied approach

The company's work is rooted in the philosophy of the embodied dance practice, a practice that creates a safe and supported space for an individual to creatively explore movement and dance in a relaxed  environment which is non-judgemental and that allows the individual to discover knowledge and understanding about kinaesthetic practices within the presence and comfort of one's own personal space.
