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 within movement practice, and how sound interacts with the body and environment.

The course aims:

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.

“I highly recommend this short course with Nina. It opened my eyes to dimensions of sound that I had never considered, and which most of us don't think about – or know about – as conscious dance teachers, but which can really assist us in creating soundscapes, understanding technical sound issues, and using sound optimally with dancers. Nina is a radio maker, composer, sound artist and much more, and brings a wealth of experience to her teaching.” - Jess Glenny, Conscious dance & yoga teacher and therapist.
"we made sound waves out of paper, it was so creative. I recommend it to anyone who is looking to learn about sound or improve their sound system, Nina is an expert and a really fun teacher to learn with..” - Sarah Davies Open Floor and 5Rhythms teacher.
