Balance in Challenge is a workshop about being present and free both on and off stage. This intensive training brings vitality, fluidity and dynamic wholeness to the act of being human.

In three one-on-one Alexander Technique lessons, we will work with you on improving your basic coordination by quieting extra tension and energizing your system towards a dynamic state of poise. In 30 hours of group classes we will explore exercises from physical theatre, clowning, martial arts, dance and juggling. Within this playground, we will observe how each of our ways of moving affects everything that we do. We will challenge you to keep breathing, stay grounded and respond with ease in many situations.

Come prepared to play at your own ‘edges’, the places just on the borders of your comfort zones, and expand your experience of life, both on stage and off. Ideal for jugglers, doctors, dancers, grocery store clerks, musicians, performers and anyone who is interested in the relationship between movement, health and expression. No experience required.

“It is no exaggeration to say that the insights I gained will stay with me forever, enriching my personal and professional development.” Liam Wilson, Juggler/Artist

“I had the feeling the workshop brought back what I once knew and now have forgotten.” Henning Fischer MD

The Teachers:

Peter Sweet - (

With an insatiable drive for expanding knowledge of movement and performance, Peter Sweet has completed more than 10 years of full time training in the arts. He teaches workshops, directs shows, and performs all over the world. His solo circus-show “Meet Pete Sweet”, on tour since 2000, has played in festivals, circuses and theaters in more than 20 countries. Both his success and his delight in performing have been fuelled by his willingness to pour his heart out in every show (He also trains a heck of a lot).

Sweet studied physical theater at the Helikos International School of Theater Creation in Florence, Italy; Contemporary and Classical dance at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance in Salzburg, Austria; circus at Ecole du Cirque Zofy in Sion, Switzerland; is a certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, and has been practicing Tai Chi since 1998.

In his free time he drinks fine Chinese tea, plays the Glockenspiel, and watches Muppett show re-runs.

Jeanine Ebnother Trott (

Jeanine grew up in Switzerland, climbing trees, playing Judo and teaching herself to ride a unicycle. Her love for circus brought her to the ESAC National Circus school in Brussels, Belgium where she trained for 4 years. After graduating Jeanine toured across Europe, India and Australia performing several acts including her Solo act ‘Balledanse'. Later as ‘Aromatic Company’ with saxophonist Caleb Trott. Together they create pieces that combine circus, music, dance, physical theatre.
Always exited about discovering new things and expanding the ‘playground’, Jeanine has been taking dance and juggling workshops with many teachers, studied Chinese tea with Menglin Chou in Zurich and Taiwan and co-organized three International Ministry of Manipulation workshops.
She taught juggling and movement exploration at circus festivals and has previously been invited as a guest teacher at Fontys Academy of Circus and Performing Arts in Tilburg, at the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) in Melbourne and Codarts in Rotterdam.

In 2013, Jeanine completed the 3 year training to become a certified teacher of the F.M. Alexander Technique and uses this new tool to improve movement quality, accelerate learning and increase health.
