SOUNDS PHYSICAL is a series of courses for conscious dance facilitators and dance movement therapists to creatively explore sound and music in your practice.


Sounds Physical Part 1 – Sound + Body + Environment. 


This is an introductory online course exploring the bare bones of professional sound practice. It will focus on working with sound as a physical presence on the dance floor and look at how sound interacts with the body and environment. 


This course will enable you to make informed choices about equipment and how to use it, and stimulate creative ideas when working with music across all genres.


The course aims: 


  • To develop practical and creative skills when working with sound and music, enabling sound confidence and safety. 


  • To encourage sound awareness and demystify some of the technical aspects of sound production. 


  • To explore and share ideas about wellbeing, sound and the body.





There will be a different theme each week, we will look at the nature of sound and hearing; setting levels; how sound interacts with the environment and different surfaces; sound vibration and the body; health and safety and wellbeing; sound processing with EQ and Reverb. Weekly creative exercises will include sound meditations and working with words, image making and movement to playfully explore your experience and awareness of sound.
