Flowing space is the name for the activities of a small black-haired girl. Me.
My name is Jolana Šohajková. I am a psychologist and since childhood
I was devoted to dance. In the past few years I went through
personal crises and turns in my relation to dance that I knew. I started to hate the dance
form that curtails dancer's expression so it could fit to the choreographer's ideas. More and more I felt that there
is much more in dance and movement - life itself. I left dance group and the dance
in the gym full of mirrors and put myself to the conscious examination of my
soul through movement. In my own pedagogical work I started to focus not on
aesthetics but on encouraging the self-expression and self-knowledge of the dancers.
Currently I lead regular dance lessons in jazz and contemporary style as well as I work with conscious movement and improvisation that allows us develop not only the body but also the mind. I teach mainly adults. I also work through the movement with adolescents in a psychiatric hospital. I'm very interested in the issue of fear of dancing.
Right now I'm finishing Master's degree in psychology at the Prague College of Psychosocial Studies, I am attending 5 years long psychotherapeutical training and the workshops of dancemovement therapy.
