dance scapes is the website for the Movement Medicine work of Rosie Perks.

Rosie offers a space in which to land and explore that is safe, non-judgemental and expertly held, her guidance is both sensitive and clear. Her teaching is informed by a long and rich relationship to dance, her understanding of our shared humanity, and a fierce love of the earth and all its inhabitants  - althought she's not too keen on fleas, ticks and slugs!

Rosie has always loved to dance and first danced with Susannah and Ya’Acov Darling Khan in 1989, when they launched the School in 2006 she started her voyage in Movement Medicine with them. She is a fully qualified Movement Medicine Teacher and a faculty member and mentor for the School of Movement Medicine. She has many years teaching experience, and began her work as a Movement Medicine teacher in 2011.

Rosie lives in Devon, UK with her husband of 20 years, teenage daughter, dog and 2 cats and spent many years running a small graphic design agency. She grew up here, in the South Hams of Devon and finds the land, rivers and seas here to be one of her strongest resources as a Movement Medicine teacher and is   never happier than when walking her dog or cuddling her cats - or dancing!

“I am beginning to understand the 'call' of my teaching to be in creating an environment in which we are able to allow ourselves to simply exist in each moment.  When this happens and we are not trying to be more or less than we are there is a magic of interconnection that makes the breath between us alive and open. What I see happening in this space is people wake up to their right to exist and to the possibility of really being with others in the simple truth of our humanity.

Why is this of value? I think it matters because it offers a place to revitalise and remember. This resources us to go out into the world and open our eyes and hearts to other beings and the earth on which we live. To find a place of home and nourishment in a world where the challenges and pressures are many.” Rosie
