Dancing Families is an artistic research project conducted by a group of Spanish artists since 2002. Initiated during a trip to Africa, the exploration of the movement-related interactions that are possible to build between family members have resulted in a multidimensional project extending far beyond Spain and involving professionals and festivals across the world. For over a decade, artists, psychologists and researchers have been conducting workshops with hundreds of families to develop methods which are best suited for the designing of classes which involve all family members, i.e. children, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins etc., in movement activities.
The basic premise of the workshops is to see a family as a group of people who are equal. The participants unite and build intimate and unique bonds, in addition to gaining insight into their own and each other’s emotions. The relaxation movement activities make them feel at ease and allow them to open up to others. Choreographic work in groups comprising members of the same family provides for better understanding and for the building of bonds and trust. Owing to the way in which the instructors release the participants’ freedom of expression, to the lack of division into age or gender groups and to activities that reject the principle of orders and prohibitions, the workshop not only has a relaxing effect on the participants, but also a therapeutic one.
