Expression and Compassion in Action
Come join a fun and supportive community fueled by spontaneity, creativity, playfulness, and intuition.

INTRODUCTION
Life can be full of noise: expectations, competition, criticism, and judgements. All kinds of  distractions that take you away from who you truly are and aspire to be. E.C.A provides a chance for you to break away from all of that. Through natural movement, visualization and embodiment of your intentions, we offer a space to breath, connect, and realign.

Come join a fun and supportive community fueled by spontaneity, creativity, playfulness, and intuition.

Life Rehearsal
Come to experience some self-exploration methods including empathy training, psychodrama, life rehearsal, sociometry, etc. Our intention is to create a safe space without judgement where we can explore and express ourselves freely with the support of a group.
Movement Jam
Movement Jams give you an opportunity to freely create, express and interact.        Equipped with simple tools & tricks, you’ll get the chance to use your body as an alternative form of spontaneous art. Everyone, especially artists, can communicate through improvised movement, regardless of past experience.  This is a space where you can reconnect to that raw love of creation- that pure joy of making art.

What you can get out from E.C.A sessions?
Rehearse your life without worrying about mistakes

Move your body freely

Be part of a supportive community

Explore yourself in an innovative way

Have the opportunity to truly listen to other’s stories and share your own

Express yourself through intuitive movement

Connect your mind, body, and spirit

Gain inspirations from all the above

Previous experiences in dance or drama are not necessary!
