Four-year Training

This future training aims to meet the needs of those seeking a way to transform their body/voice instrument so that as teachers and/or artists they can fulfill the needs of education and the performing arts in a way that serves the evolution of the human being as an entity of body, soul, and spirit.

Teaching:

To provide the skills that will prepare teachers of all age groups to explore the creative power of the imagination, speech and language in an embodied way as it manifests in language development, poetry, storytelling and drama. Attention will be given to material appropriate at an adult level and through the developmental stages from early childhood through to adolescence as inspired by the Waldorf curriculum.

Performance:

To provide the essential skills to create performances that encompass a wholistic and transformative experience for the artist and spectator. For those who have completed the training, the opportunity exists to audition for the Heartfire Ensemble, created to research the methodology further and collaborate in the development of new work.

Personal Development

For those seeking personal growth and an experiential exploration of Anthroposophy through an artform, the wholistic process of the first two years of the training offers a transformative pathway of development.
