Feedback from workshop The Art of Intuitive Playing in Ponec Teater in Prague

Questions:

 

1.     Is this workshop useful for your personal growth or rather for profession, or both?

 

2.     Did you learn/experience something new during the workshop?

 

 

 

Answers:

 

For me personal development and profession are parallel. I believe that pedagogue should work on pesonal growth his/her whole life.

 

A new view of old things.

 

I think that everybody should experience this workshop. Your target group shouldn’t be only pedagogues and dancers…

 

 

 

Both – and it interconnects perfectly J

 

Rather, I gained a new insight into situations I already know. Thanks to the workshop I am able to see these situations in a new light.

 

Deepening and development of my experience.

 

 

 

My reason for being here is professional but in reality it is so connected that both.

 

Yes, I found a lots of inspiration and awarness (reflection) of both work and myself.

 

 

 

Mostly for my personal growth but for other use as well.

 

Yes, a great deal of things, for example that we constantly have to make things harder for ourselves. I also realized a lot of things during the workshop.

 

 

 

I needed the workshop profesionaly – inner need for inspiration. It also meant a lot for my personal growth - thought it was not initial need.

 

Plenty of new inspiration, how to create new things. Different points of view, new relations and contacts. It has been a long time, since I played so much J

 

 

 

Both, it is always connected, movement, sharing, community. I would like to walk this path with patience and joy.

 

Team activities were more interesting for me than usual, continuation of what was pleasantly started in a space, social skills that need to be developed, opening up in safe environment.

 

 

 

I discovered and named a lot of things for myself, that I might have  already inuitively known but which were hidden somewhere. Now, thanks to the workshop I can work with these discoveries.Thank you for such an inspiring workshop.

 

 

 

Personal and I hope it will also result in professional.

 

More than bringing something new, it helped me to smooth what was already whithin me. I call it grinding of diamond. J They are things that relate to dance and work with a group.

 

It appeared somewhere – I know Thomas and I was even more interested in a project Dance to Schools.  Which, I admit, I did not know before. J

 

It was amazing, I am refreshed and I want to stay here with You J

 

 

 

I discovered a lot about my own feelings and experience while alone and in a group. I gained better awarness of my actions and actions of others and recognition of my reactions to situations – how do I feel and why, what does it do with me and so on. I think, that all of this is important for personal development and for a profession of a teacher- guide, who should be aware of a situation and sense a mood in a class and at school, between children in a collective.

 

 

 

Personal and professional. Dance/movement is my passion on a personal level. Creativity has an important place in my life and at the same time it interconnects with my work in a forest kindergarden (intuitive pedagogy), scenography and physical theathre.

 

Mainly art of cooperation, work in a group, common breathing, tuning and self observation through my reactions to the team activities.

 

 

 

For me, the workshop meant mainly a time for myself. I had an opportunity to feel a joy through playing and experience time without a must to do anything, to enjoy an energy of a group, cooperation and common meditative atmosphere. For me, a personal growth is very connected to professional, so both.

 

Everything we did and talked about are things, that I feel I already knew, but it is always good to remind and experience them again. When I teach I offten find myself doing something I don´t want to and it is the same in comunication with my own children. It is good to bring this into a game, realize it and somehow work with it.

 

 

 

The workshop was more important for my personal growth and a little bit also for my profession. I took in how Thomas structures  work with a group and supports specific atmosphere, how he works with time. It is possible, that I will use some of the exercises for a work with children or adults.

Exercise: pass on your chopsticks in many different ways. Dynamics and atmosphere of a group with more (almost 100% )female participants. For now I am learning to feel and ease into it. That people who dance are likeable and quite balanced.
