Bridging Somatics and Performing Arts for
Founded in 1994 by Carol Swann and Martha Eddy, Moving On Center (MOC) the School for Participatory Arts & Somatic Research has been a pioneer in the field of holistic and interdisciplinary education.
We Begin with the Body
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.
Learn about multiple Somatic Practices
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.
These methods give you specific skills to develop your body connectivity, re-pattern habitual alignment and movement patterns, increase your kinesthetic awareness through embodied anatomy and learn skills for greater communication within oneself and with others.
