Open Training is dynamic, powerful training across the floor, accompanied by music. It works every part of the body effectively, strengthening your endurance, mobility, coordination and balance. Awareness of centre, alignment, grounding, breathing, time and space is enhanced. Each session concludes with stretching.

Open training is for anybody who wants to work on increasing awareness of the body. Beginners and professionals alike are welcome – and all levels can benefit from the training.

Open training is a mixture of western dance forms and MB (muscle-bone or mind-body: the physical training component of butoh dancer Min Tanaka’s Body Weather approach).

Open training is taught by a training community consisting of choreographers, dancers and performers. Based on this shared format they each give their individual interpretation.


Start whenever you like and take part as often as you can. Dress so you can move freely. Classes are done in bare or stockinged feet.
