Professional Skills

MOC’s training programs integrate multiple somatic systems with performing and healing arts toward social change. We offer a unique opportunity to integrate the desire for personal growth with the development of meaningful professional skills applicable to fields such as performing arts, education, health and social change.

About Our Programs

Socially Conscious

We aim to provide tools for individuals, groups and entire communities to become aware of our own interconnectedness, to each other and the planet through somatic perception and to assess, interrupt, and transform harmful personal and social patterns.

Moving On Center dynamic and rigorous movement based training modules are based on and integrate various somatic modalities such as Body Mind Centering (R), Laban Movement Analysis, Bartennieff Fundamentals (TM), Alexander Technique, Axis Syllabus, Authentic Movement, Voice Through The Body, Developmental Movement and others.
