My pleasure to share love with you beautiful people, thanks a lot Jérôme for the opportunity to get this so special safe space, it mean so much to me ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

A wonderful playground where I can (re)discover my movability. Not doing, just being. Being danced. No work, just play! Freedom. ❤️

I totally support what you’ve moved within me, because that is the gift I gave myself.

What Jerôme’s class brings me is a place of transformation and recycling of my emotions, through the body. I’m more self-aware in relationship as a result. It also strengthens my faith in human connection, because of the fun and kindness that develops.
future teacher

In this space I can safely practice how to bring the relationship between my body and my mind into one of More equal and Playful cooperation, rather than one of discipline and domination. I become aware – can notice how – my Body/mind are always in dialogue, never static, and I am encouraged to move in the flow – yin/yang – without judgement or resistance. At least, that’s the goal 😉🙏💛

Getting over mental boundaries about being close to others

Interacting with others on a different level also helps me deal with daily social interaction
Chronic pain management, making it easier for my body to return to a natural flow state
And feeling more at ease in my own body

Magical, just magical. The space: created by beautiful souls and their energies 💫The body is indeed sore today! 😆 and the emotional body allows some soreness too, some sadness to sit along with the amazement of receiving love 💛🚿💦

Yes. And yesterday’s ending ceremony was the cherry on top. How important it is to be invited and to invite ourselves to connect and treat each other with kindness, love and care. We all know that as human beings and the mamals we are that this helps us thrive. 🙏 to the soul (I don’t know her name) who thought of inviting us to do this process.

I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed and appreciated the class – the community the safe space the JOY in the body! 💫 you have (co) created something special 💛

So what really helps me as a musician is first the connection with my body, which i believe is integral in a performance, being musical or not, beyond that you also explore communication with your colleagues in a different way, as the same you would do in a improvisation in music, you would explore the movements and geometry of your own body in relation to another, counterpoint… so for me is also an ludic way of doing the same i would do in musical dialogue, but without all the self judgments and technical struggles with instruments

Last but not least, connecting your breathing to your movement is an excellent way of connecting better my breathing in my playing, in my case since i play wind instruments is even more, but for a string player or whatever would still be important and healthy, usually we tend to create unnecessary tension and disconnection with our breath when playing

11 – 15 April 2022

Open classes every morning 10:30 -11:15 AM

Showing Friday 15 April 19:30 – 21:30

Julian & Shira from Bodies In Action ~ enGendering Contemporary Dance from England will be starting a new Research in the Cloud studio.

We will look at what it is like to reconnect with something unfamiliar. This can be taken in an abstract or literal sense. It will be quite a personal residency, with opportunity to take things we are familiar with, throw them out the window, and discover new things both physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Some questions and ideas we have while playing with this new creation is: 

  1. How do unfamiliar bodies become familiar once again? How does the familiarity change?
  2. Does the reconnection of something that seems distant automatically reconnect or not?
  3. How does one/something smell, look, feel different? Can this happen with both a person and materialistic thing ?
  4. How do we transform the act of “re-meeting” into something abstract and visual? 
  5. How does the amount of time apart from someone/something affect the reconnection of this?

Through these questions and figuring out the answers, we will find ways to manifest the creative process through physical tasks in order to generate material. We will take inspiration from our own unique experience as well as gather other experiences from our individual selves to tackle the question of how we reconnect with estranged individuals. 

At the CLOUD/Danslab residency, we will invite people to come and take class in the morning.

Depending on what the space allows for, we will either guide a meditation/pilates/movement class or if professional dancers would like, we will host a ballet for contemporary dancers; otherwise, we will do a combination of both.

if you want more information about the classes please contact Julian:

We will host a showing at the end of the week

to gather the immediate community to see what we have been up to. After this showing, there will be a discussion based on what people saw.

New Class: Restorative Pilates

Unfortunately due to too few sign ups this class has been canceled for now .

We’re super excited to have Sophie joining our amazing teacher’s team.

Restorative Pilates
Mondays 18:30-19:30

“In this class I believe it is important to give you the freedom to explore the movement potential of your body. My classes are based on the Pilates method with influences from other movement practices built in to keep it fun, creative and to explore the possibilities of taking your joints through different ranges of motion. 

My focus is on addressing everyday aches and pains. By working together, we can hopefully facilitate more freedom of movement.”
– Sophie Gills

Classes will be in English. Please bring your own mat and head cushion or towel.

Thursdays 23/1, 30/1, 6/2


Cloud at Danslab in The Hague ( )

address: DCR – De Constant Rebecqueplein 20b, 2518 RA The HagueClass

Description :

In my classes, I like to facilitate a welcoming, energetic and encouraging environment for the participants.
The class begins with a playful warm-up to tune in with ourselves in space and connect with each other, preparing safely for dance practice. We will focus on floorwork technique through various exercises and dance phrases. There will be some exercises informed by Flying Low, a technique which was developed by David Zambrano. This technique focuses mainly on the dancer’s relationship with the ground, utilizing simple movement patterns, which explore cohesion and expansion and trains the body to move in and out of the floor efficiently with speed. Towards the end of the class, we are going to learn a longer dance sequence in which we will add more material each time.

Through this class, we train our body to become physically strong, alerted and agile. We become friends with the floor, learn to use our weight efficiently, play with different dynamics and work towards expanding our movement vocabulary. Nourishing our bodily awareness we move with a greater sense of our own bodies, the others, and space, but also with a greater pleasure for movement.

Are you looking for a course to develop your technical knowledge while you are having fun? Then this class is for you!

Expect to play, fall, spiral, roll, release, jump, connect, make contact, enjoy the pleasure of motion… Looking forward to meeting you on the dance floor!

“The Crawling Eye”|Raúl Saldarriaga

The Crawling Eye De workshop is open voor dansers van alle niveau’s en wordt afgesloten met een open jam. Tijdens de workshop benaderen we het lichaam als een sensor voor macro- en microgebaren. De informatie zetten we om in specifieke bewegingen. Het lichaam van een ander wordt op een bijzondere, niet-alledaagse wijze geobserveerd; als een oneindige platform voor vorm en mogelijkheden. Door steeds nieuwe situaties te creëren krijg je de mogelijkheid om te variëren met constructies, impulsen en reacties. Ook het maken van “fouten” zorgt voor nieuwe ingangen. Een workshop waarin het spel, en niet het ritueel, centraal staat. 

Raúl Saldarriaga (Colombia, 1982) is een choreograaf, danser en contact improvisatie onderzoeker uit Amsterdam. Hij werkt als artistiek directeur van het “Casagrafias” creatie festival en dans docent. Zijn stijl komt voort uit “Forced Displacement”; een onderzoekmethode naar nieuwe bewegingsvormen aan de hand van de anatomie en gebaren van andermans lichaam. Hij speelt met de architectuur van het lichaam om zo een intuïtieve bewegingstaal te creëren. Raúl heeft een achtergrond in Kunstpedagogiek BA, Hedendaagse dans BA, Interactive media and environments MA en Choreography and community MA en woont in Amsterdam.

The Crawling Eye by Raúl Saldarriaga. The workshop is open to everyone (no experience required) and is followed by an open jam* with live music. In this introduction-workshop, you will explore the body as a sensor capable of perceiving macro and micro gestures, transform this information in movement decisions. A sensitive state where we have the ability to observe another body in a non-everyday way,  as an infinite field of forms and possibilities. Each movement, each new space offers unique situations where we can explore different constructions, responses, and variations. The “error” is only a new possibility. The connection and disconnection also create a dynamic.  We will immerse ourselves in contact with the other body with the idea of the game and not the ritual.

Raúl Saldarriaga (Colombia, 1982) He is a relational choreographer and contact improvisation researcher. He is currently the artistic director of the “Casagrafias” creation festival and teacher of Contact Improvisation. The style he teaches comes from dance research called “Forced Displacement.” This technic style is based on the ability to find possibilities of movement in the anatomy and gestures of another body; taking the idea of improvisation to the limit; leaving behind the certainty of what is the final destination of a movement; using different muscle tones and interact with bone architecture to create an intuitive movement language. Raul has a background in BA Art pedagogy,  BA contemporary dance, MA interactive media and environments and MA choreography and community.  ____________________________

Countertechnique classes |EIlit Marom

Countertechnique Open Morning Class

Tuesday  Sep 24th 10:00 – 11:30 – First Class!  With Eilit Marom
From Oct 15th till Dec 17th  2019

a series of 10 weekly classes every Tuesday morning at Cloud

The Countertechnique® class is a contemporary dance technique class. It stretches, coordinates and strengthens the body, making the dancer sweat, build stamina and
really move. The class starts with a recurring set of exercises, allowing dancers to investigate the Countertechnique principles in detail. The second half of the class consists of changing components, working towards luscious movement combinations and jumping at the end. The Countertechnique class results in dancers using less energy, losing their fear of taking risks and gaining speed in changing direction.

Eilit Marom, originally from Israel is based both in Haifa, Israel, and The Hague, the Netherlands. She has studied Countertechnique since 2007 and had an internship as Anouk van Dijk’s assistant in 2009. She attended the Countertechnique Teacher Training program in 2012 and 2014, and has been teaching Countertechnique since 2012 around Europe and Israel.Along side teaching Eilit is a performer and choreographer in the filed of dance and performance, she is part of an international collective for the project (To) Come and See and collaborates on various creations with the visual artist Adam Nillissen. (

“My main interest in moving is to find ways to connect and express ourselves through our bodies, I like to awaken the senses and the sensitivity to our environment through observing what is happening when we open a desire to move. Countertechnique empowered my dancing and gave my body more volume and presence, bringing the focus to the moment of action.

New class starting 17th of November: Hilal Dance

Contemporary Egyptian Dance

Hilal dance is the art-dance based on the creative, performative and educational work of avant-garde artist Suraya Hilal. We work on the natural flowing of energy in our body; from our roots through the legs, spine, torso and head in a series of connected and creative movements. We will make use of classical and contemporary Middle Eastern music, integrated with other genres and at times live music.

All levels and genders welcome.
