Come and discover MIND THE DANCE. Join us in labs across Europe.


MIND THE DANCE1 is a collection of essays, manuals, scores, exercises, and maps; giving voice to a multitude of stances, ideas, and applications in and around documenting movement. It aims to motivate and empower the reader-teacher-artist to use creative documenting to enhance your teaching and artistic practice.


MIND THE DANCE labs, hosted by REFLEX Europe2, are an opportunity to learn together about this digital publication. The labs offer tools to apply within your own practice.


MIND THE DANCE labs are open to anyone inspired by movement and reflection through documentation. Its adaptable nature makes it of interest for practitioners from other disciplines.


The results – both of teaching and documentation practices – will contribute to the dialogue with your colleagues, students, and other audiences on and elsewhere. Keep moving, thinking, exploring, sharing, and enjoying the dances. Make your work visible. It is our legacy.
