International Summer School 2018
MMM’s Super Successful Summer School 2018 was held from 29 July to 5 August at the University of Chichester in beautiful West Sussex, UK. Almost 90 participants were registered aged from 7 to 96 years and representing 10 different countries – more if you count the countries of origin! There were classes indoors and outdoors too, intensive courses and teacher training, a varied evening programme, a number of guests from the art and theatre world and a fantastic show at the end of the week with 32 items on the programme! The Celebration of Nations evening underlined the truly international nature of this year’s Summer School. The MMM Tree placed many names, past and present, in their context, reminding us of our original teachers and how MMM spread from Margaret Morris’ original schools in London and the South of France around the world to become the international network that exists today.
Below is a video of a Yellow class performing Neck Rest and Upstretch in a formation inspired by a classic MMM dance from 1923 outside in the garden.
