Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is excited to be hosting a 3-week intensive Teacher Training course in the Franklin Method in 2011. The course is spread out over a 6 month period with training intensives on 14-20 February, 11-17 April and 4-10 July. It is designed to provide invaluable insight into the mind/body relationship using a combination of imagery and movement. Not only will the Franklin method enhance performance, boost confidence and advance effective body usage, it also has the power to reduce anxiety and speed up the recovery of any physical injuries, making it useful for movement practitioners from a variety of disciplines from dancers to performers and physical therapists.
The course is taught by Eric Franklin, world renowned author and founder of the Franklin Method and Morten Dithmer, a Franklin Method teacher. This course carefully designed to explore internal relationships within the body, including strategic rests, detailed anatomical analysis and dynamic movement techniques.
The Franklin method recognizes that body design and dance are directly linked to imagery, and by strengthening image-making abilities it is possible to strengthen functioning abilities. By closing the gap between body and mind the Franklin method has the capacity to harness the transforming power of the mind to bring about positive change.
During the course, participants will learn to incorporate imagery alongside their physical practice and gain fundamental knowledge concerning the science of movement. Sessions will combine practical exercises and theoretical seminars. The course will qualify participants as Level 1 Franklin educators so they can pass on these newly learned life-long skills.
"If you want to become the best teacher you can be, take this program. Through the Franklin Training, I have learned to see movement more clearly, correct movement patterns more easily and teach with a greater sense of joy. It was truly a life changing experience."
Nora St John, Educational Director Balanced Body.
