Want to blend dance and drawing in creative group workshops?

Segni Mossi

Rome, Italy
A rule-bending method of creative education that brings together movement and art in workshops for learners and teachers alike.

What is Segni Mossi?

Alessandro Lumare, Segni Mossi co-founder
“We are not interested in finished products. We are mainly interested in living the experience.”

Alessandro Lumare, Segni Mossi co-founder

Creative arts are an important outlet for people of all ages, but many may fear that they are not good enough to dance or make art.

Segni Mossi aims to find interesting ways to bring the arts into education. They work to engage all kinds of learners, encourage freedom of expression without anxiety and teach valuable skills such as creativity and curiosity. 

Created in Italy by Alessandro (an illustrator) and Simona (a dancer), Segni Mossi offers workshops and training courses that blend movement with graphic art. The key focus is on workshops in public primary schools, in conjunction with Mus-e, an organization that works to promote social inclusion through arts in Rome. Segni Mossi supports several schools through weekly movement and art workshops. 

The intention of the workshops is to explore the common ground between dance and drawing. Learners of all ages are able to experience how these two languages can blend together, using a sensory approach in a non-competitive setting. The workshops focus on creating an environment that stimulates collaboration and innovation, supporting participants to overcome fears that block creativity.

Segni Mossi also runs training courses for teachers and adults all over the world, to pass on their approach to artistic education. These courses explore practical proposals for educators to implement in schools. When educators take these ideas back to learners, the focus is on working with young people to research and create art rather than teaching them.

Feedback from teachers is that this style of creative education has allowed them to see their students in a different light, especially those who may have more difficulties in the classroom. Many students seem to really enjoy learning in this way and are able to express themselves much more freely through dance and drawing.

Our current impact: 

  • 500 children in our annual public primary school workshops in Rome
  • 600 families in our one-off workshops all over the world
  • 2000 children and adults in our interactive performances in public spaces all over the world
  • 6000 adults in our 2 days training courses all over the world

Tips for implementation
Segni Mossi works with schools to run workshops for both learners and teachers. Any educators who are passionate about movement and art could also set up their own events. All that is needed is a space, a few materials (these will vary depending on the session) and willing participants.

HundrED Review

Segni Mossi doesn't believe in boundaries when it comes to art. Learners don't have to paint sitting down but can draw with their whole bodies, without looking, with their voices, in the air. There are no limits!


Learners and teachers alike develop creativity and self-confidence through experimenting, taking risks and making discoveries. Motivation, communication, and curiosity are fostered among all participants.


Segni Mossi has run over 60 training courses in 14 different countries. There is much potential for collaboration with many different organizations and for creative programmes like this to be established elsewhere all around the world.
