AMAZON DANCE PROJECT

DARE DANCE Studio 2015

The Amazon Dance project for girls and women
A Dance and Martial Arts collaboration to develop a new methodology for teaching women about female archetypes.

In April 2015 Amanda invited an international group of martial arts practitioners to join her and Allen Pittman to collaborate on a research programme for young women. Over three days we studied an enneagram used by Allen Pittman to develop a martial arts training connected to female Archetypes.   We learned self defence positions to create a route of escape for a smaller person against a larger aggressor.  Each positijn was associated to a female Archetype: e.g. mediator, challenger, nurturer.  We studied  stories from history and mythology which are associated to these archetypes.  We opened a discussion on how to adapt that approach in different sectors, with different age groups and what the methodology might be..
