Born in London but raised in East Africa and the United States, Peter Lewton-Brain trained as a dancer at the School of American Ballet in New York City.  After performing with various American companies, he became a principal dancer with the National Ballet of Portugal and Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, where he performed major roles in both classical and neo classical repertory. His studies include both French and Swiss degrees in osteopathy and training in Polestar Pilates. Along with overseeing a dancer’s health clinic, he combines his different knowledge bases to enhance dancer’s performance and osteopathic care in prestigious ballets and schools. In 2006, he founded the Association Danse Médecine Recherche (ADMR). He is the President of the International Association of Dance Medicine and Science (IADMS).

Dancers’ expression enhanced through awareness and embodiment 
The workshop’s overriding objective is to promote understanding from dance to enhance expression and ease of movement. It proposes concepts drawn from osteopathy, performance, dance teaching, and research in dance medicine and science. The participants will gain self-awareness and practical take-home tools to enhance their self-expression, dancing, teaching or even caring for dancers. This workshop is aimed at enhancing skills and awareness through the most recent research in functional anatomy, neuro-dynamics and the fascial connective tissue matrix.
