Moving with Ease and Joy


Exploring Alexander Technique and the Feldenkrais Method

Course content will include playful, enjoyable work on standing, walking, sitting, reaching and more. Some considerable time will be spent lying on the floor and help will be readily available for anyone who may find getting up and down difficult. Some sections will include carefully facilitated hands on pair work which most people find helpful and enjoyable. This is a great opportunity to spend a day achieving increased body awareness, reducing stress, and enhancing ease and pleasure in everyday movements and in your yoga/Pilates/dance classes/gym sessions. Both Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais Method allow us to let go of some of the habitual postural and movement habits acquired over a lifetime which limit our freedom and efficiency in movement.


Juliana and  Hammond have been running residential dance and body awareness weekends together for around 20 years, developing increasingly effective ways of combining their skills and experience and a real passion for creating an environment where participants with a variety of backgrounds can learn, develop and discover new and more enjoyable ways of moving and being.

Juliana Brustik is a qualified Feldenkrais practitioner and has also many years’ experience as a dance teacher, performer and choreographer.

Judy Hammond is a qualified Alexander Technique practitioner, teaches classes and residential courses all over the UK and annually in Greece, and has practices in Herts and London.

Egyptian Dance Weekend
Classical style with musicians

Intensive Dance Weekend with musicians for advanced dancers, performers and teachers.


Day One: Fine tuning your instrument 1-7pm


Our instrument is our body and mind! With the help of a rich variety of bodywork, relaxation and technical dance work we will refine our ability to sense how we use ourselves when we move through space responding to the music. Feeling more in control of ourselves and freed up in our spine and joints allows us to become another instrument and truly communicate with the music. Our body can sing!


Day Two: Being part of the band 10-4.30pm


This day will start with a dance preparation before the band arrives. The focus of this second day is to listen with your whole self to the live music and respond to the nuances and the layering in the compositions. You are another instrument communicating with the band, allowing for subtle interaction. Interwoven throughout the day there will be short sections of body work to enhance your alignment, spatial awareness and strengthen your performance skills.


We are looking forward again to working with three of the top musicians from the Arab music world!

  • Emile Bassili – violine
  • Gamal Awad – org
  • Tim Garside – percussion


Judy and Juliana have been working together for more than 20 years creating intensive workshops for experienced dancers. They are offering a unique combination of anatomically safe and sound body work taken from their wide range of expertise (Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais, Contemporary Dance, Pilates, Tai chi, Qi Gong and more) to support the technical and creative dance development in the classical Eyptian Oriental dance form (Raqs Sharqi) and deepen the understanding of how to dance to live music.

JULIANA BRUSTIK is one of the leading dance performers and teachers in the UK of Egyptian dance. She has many years of experience of working with top musicians (including the late Ibrahim el Minyawi and Sheikh Taha). Her dance degree in Contemporary Dance/choreography and qualification in the Feldenkrais Method have helped her expand the traditional language of the dance into a  contemporary expressive art form.

JUDY HAMMOND Her decades of researching and teaching dance, movement and Alexander Technique and working with many fine musicians, dancers and actors have in the past twenty years resulted in the creation of some probably unique ways of enhancing the performer’s kinaesthetic awareness, sensitive response to music and ability to ground and centre one’s energies. The results are a joy to experience for the dancer and audience.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”479″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_circle_2″ img_link=””][vc_column_text]
