Le Centre du Silence Mime School (LCDS) is an independent school for self-discovery through the human Arts, devoted to teaching the dynamics of personal power and professional creativity. The school offers seminars and workshops that integrate thought with action by teaching the concepts of Theatre and Movement, how to learn to write your own script, play the lead role in your life story intelligently, and awaken the creative child within you, relying with confidence on your own authority.
Founded in 1971 by master mime, Samuel Avital, the school teaches the BodySpeak™ movement method. BodySpeak™ is an interactive and highly intensive program of training designed to integrate mind, body, and spirit. It is the culmination of Avital’s forty years' experience as a theatrical performer, author, and teacher.
Since only approximately 10% of communication is verbal, with 90% through movement and body language, BodySpeak™ teaches a powerful method of communication and self-understanding.

Body Speak is, in its essence, a journey from thought to action. Along the way we learn to focus the mind, discipline the body, and activate powerful creative energies. We discover new and subtle ways to communicate with one another. We also have a lot of fun.
