The art of embodied movement

“Move the way you feel, not the way you think.”

We possess in our bodies an innate intelligence for movement that defies description, but whose existence is undeniably perceptible. This intelligence is of unimaginable value if we succeed in accessing it.

Then we know how to perform every natural movement correctly. We know the right breathing rhythm for every effort, the right stretch for every tension, and so on. But also in sex, like dancing, we are able to feel completely into the body of another person. We know exactly in what way and at what time a movement may be performed. What is astonishing is that this intelligence also goes far beyond primordial physicalities: it has a great sense of aesthetics.

Frank Lee Döllinger

As a child, Frank Lee took his first steps in breakdancing. Early on, he sensed a difference between a movement that carried passion and one that was “empty”. The question of what constituted this distinction unexpectedly led him into the depths of consciousness and his relationship to the body. For more than twenty years now, this has been the guiding question of his ongoing odyssey. In his contrasting life he succeeds time and again in the balancing act between artistic avant-garde and therapeutic work. Frank Lee is part of international artistic collaborations and one of the few who can teach dance from the perspective of an artist as well as that of a therapist.

“Frank Lee Doellinger stands out as the most sovereign when he moves. His movements herald a passion for dance in which the question of same or different simply evaporates.”

The Workshop

Frank Lee will connect you with your innate movement intelligence and show you how to dance with it. He will guide you into a state of consciousness that is one of the most powerful human experiences. You will see why it is said that dance is not an activity, but something that happens to you. The training will positively change your relationship with your body forever. Everyone interprets the exercises in their own way and is guided by their own limitations. You will need concentration and courage for this training.

“We were able to experience something very special. We participated in one of Frank’s workshops. Our expectations were to learn new moves. That took place, but was not essential. Frank showed us how to find our flow and express ourselves in movement, freed from the thinker, in connection with our inner being. We can only recommend everyone to learn from this special person….”
