Over het evenement

Bartenieff Fundamentals (BF) is a body-oriented method that focuses on movement and body awareness as a psycho-physical process. Regular practice of BF supports the development of dynamic posture, coordination, flexibility, mobility, kinesthetic awareness and expression. It is an aid in reducing injuries, physical limitations or complaints, but also in learning to deal with stress better. The goal of BF is to move with ease, efficiency and expression. Not only your body-awareness but also your self-awareness is increased by the connection that is made with the internal process of the movement experience.


Reactions from participants:

" Marieke took me on a wholesome, inspiring journey within myself during this BF introduction training. Her enthusiasm, creativity, knowledge and coordinated work are a gift."

"Enriching, surprising and delightful. Those are the words that come to mind after the three-day BF introductory training. A renewed acquaintance with the possibilities of my body, interesting insights into unconscious patterns and wonderful movement and dancing. _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b -136bad5cf58d_And all that under the expert, cheerful and loving guidance of Marieke."

"The Bartenieff Fundamentals training given by Marieke is a warm immersion in enjoying your own body awareness. Highly recommended for anyone who likes to move in complete freedom!"

"Marieke's workshop was truly inspiring! In just 3 days, with the right guidance, I discovered so many aspects of supporting my body and so many new ways to move! She is a great teacher with a lot of patience and genuine will to share her knowledge. I am really looking forward to work with her in the future."


This training consists of 20 hours of teaching and is a broad introduction for anyone who wants to get acquainted with Bartenieff Fundamentals. It is also a deepening for those who have worked with this before. You can easily integrate the knowledge and skills you gain in this training into your own work with dance, dance therapy, body-oriented therapy, Pilates, yoga, but also in any other form of movement. You will be introduced to various principles of BF, such as dynamic posture, breathing and center support, rotation and developmental pattern support. These principles support organic, conscious and embodied movement. The practice includes fixed basic exercises and free movement improvisations. The exercises are supportive for anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of movement and dance. In addition, therapeutic themes are also discussed that are related to principles and/or patterns, and that you can possibly include in working with clients in a therapeutic setting. In BF you learn to perceive and train effective and connected movement in the body, to be able to use them in complex three-dimensional and dynamic movement possibilities.

1. the training in the Laban Bartenieff Movement System of EMOVE Institute. For more information please contact Marieke or visit the website
