Co-founder, Robb Correll, gave his first dance recital when he was 4 years old and dance has been his easiest access to joy ever since. After studying classical vocal performance in the USA, he migrated to Switzerland where he has lived ever since, working as a vocal performance coach, choir director, theater director, and university lecturer in learning design. Together with his wife and co-founder of Ecstatic Dance Bern, Judith Meuwly Correll, he founded the private school Sesam, an arts integrated school dedicated to the full development of every young person’s creativity and self-expression. The school is now a place of growth and development for over 100 young people, ages 4 to 17. Conscious movement, especially 5-Rhythms, Open Floor and Medicine Dance has been a staple of Robb’s life for over 15 years, a fact that eventually led to the initiation of Ecstatic Dance Bern.
