The Atelier du Geste Rythmé by France Schott-Billmann is dedicated to the transmission of Expression Primitive and to the training of animators and/or therapists who wish to use this kind of artistic mediation.

France Schott-Billmann is the director; Eric Julien, defender of the Indian case, introduce her in the following terms: “Psychoanalyst and dance therapist, France Schott-Billmann is above all a passionate. She has been exploring archaic rhythms for years, in order to give back their place to the cycles and the rhythms which constitute the living beings. A joyful and effective path toward the transformation of the self”.

The Atelier du Geste Rythmé proposes week-end workshops, a summer workshop in August, training workshops and workshops abroad, whose hours are valid for both the Atelier and the DRLST trainings (see the window The association). The training can be paid at the personal training price (paid by the participant) or at the continuous training price (financed by the employer). It includes 350 hours that can be attended in France or abroad (Belgium, Greece, Argentine... in partnering with the DRLST association). . You are free to start whenever you feel to, in every moment of the year, to take part in the workshops following the order you wish, to choose your own rhythm and your own schedule. Except for the workshops in Paris, all the training workshops are residential and they take place in a countryside gîte (accommodation) in the region of Paris (77).

Concerning France the yearly workshop possibilities include: 4 week-end workshops, 3 training workshops and a summer workshop, that is 250 hours in all. Then you have to add 100 hours choosing other workshops in the following year.

The cost for 250 hours (one year) is:

  • personal training: 4 week-end workshops - 120 € + 3 training workshops - 380 € + one summer workshop 525 € = 480 + 1140 + 525 = 2145 €.
  • continuous training: 4 week-end workshop 250 € + 3 training workshops 660 €+ one summer workshop 950 €= 1000 + 1980 + 950 = 3930 €.

The total price/350 hours (one year + for instance 2 training workshops the next year) will be:

  • personal training: 2145 + (2 x 380 ) = 2905 €;
  • continuous training: 3930 + (2 x 660) = 5250 €.
