Céline Gimbrère discovered the depth of the Discipline of Authentic Movement in her first meeting with Janet Adler in 1995. She became deeply fascinated by the work and has been a student of Janet’s in individual and group retreats since then.

Since 1995, in her private studio in The Hague, the Netherlands, Céline receives individuals and small groups interested in the practice and study of the Discipline of Authentic Movement. She offers supervision in the discipline for those who use Authentic Movement in their practice and/or their personal creative work. She focuses on all aspects of working with and practicing the Discipline of Authentic Movement. Currently she is developing small groups for advanced students to study the relationship between mover and witness more deeply from both perspectives. She is a dance improvisation teacher, psychomotor therapist, and body-oriented psychotherapist. Céline also offers retreats in The Netherlands, Belgium and France.

Celine has been a consultant for movement and dance in primary education. As a choreographer she created performances with non-professional dancers. She was director of the school for dance improvisation at the Theaterschool in Amsterdam from 1992 – 1995. From 2004 – 2011 she worked at the International Criminal Court at The Hague as a Senior Support Assistant of the Victims and Witnesses Unit where she worked for victims of the conflicts in Darfur, Congo and Kenya.

Since 2008, Celine has been teaching Authentic Movement in the Master program for Dance Therapy at CODARTS, Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Céline has a private practice as a movement and dance therapist and supervisor since 1990.

Céline Gimbrère has a Master’s degree in Educational Dance, a post-graduate degree in Psycho-motor Therapy and a postgraduate degree in Body-Oriented Psychotherapy (Amsterdam).

Her book “Out of silence,” (2006) offers poetic and visual impressions from her personal work in Authentic Movement and from the performances she created in the same period of time.
