DANCE MOVEMENT: Repetition of Spiderflower's core principles within the dance form will strengthen a dancers movement technique.
THE EARTH CYCLE: The course is rooted within Spiderflower's 4-point wheel and follows the earth cycle, which is the basis and bedrock of all Spiderflower's teaching and explores the inter-relationship existent between body, earth and life-cycles.
THEATRE + PERFORMANCE: Theatre technique, to include; the use of space and place, the ensemble, storytelling, characterisation and relationship with the audience are all taught at foundation level.

We are blessed with a new home and what a home it is.
Teaterstudio Lederman is like a dream come true and is a superb space.
Located in Central Stockholm, from it's rich sumptuous foyer through to the classic black box stage - it's alive and oozing theatre tradition in every way to offer The Ongoing Group for Stockholm everything it needs as a place for steady progression.
Our relationship with our venues and being on the same page matters. The orientation of Teaterstudio Lederman resonates with values held by Spiderflower.
In their own words:
"Theaterstudio Lederman is driven by a desire to fight for humanistic ideals. We work mainly with cross-border art forms. We want to create meetings and dialogues between people and phenomena in our society that are usually not met. Theater and music, audience and scene, young, middle-aged and really old, different nationalities, cultural life and society, creativity and politics. Our goal is for us and our audience to discover something new . . . "
