MIU Certified Online Horton & Graham School and CPD Training Provider

M-Intensive University is a Graham & Horton Techniques online School and Continuing Education Provider registered in England and Wales under company number 12564799.




Join Patrice Moniz, Director of M-Intensive University, along with leading international Horton and Graham Techniques Guests Experts.

Over two weeks, we will progressively cover the traditional exercises and movements of The Horton and Graham Techniques from Beginner to Advanced levels.

Participants earn their CPD Certificate after completing 1 or 2 Weeks. Students select the CPD course they wish to do and the points they desire to acquire. You can also choose to study only 1 Technique over one week; you are still eligible to receive your CPD Certificate.


During the CPD training, we will alternate dance, movements, Q&As, discussions, and studies. Please, bring a notebook and a pen and be ready to dance in every lesson; make sure to allocate some space to ensure that our teachers can see your entire body. 



If You Have Ever Thought...

Do you feel limited in your movement because of an old injury? Perhaps you think you are not fit enough to follow the CPD training? Or are you worried that the level might be too high? Know that you are welcome to join us and observe the dancing when necessary; you will still be involved and learn like everyone else. Our CPD training doesn't require you to move intensively without interruption. We will study slowly to allow everyone to join and do what you love in an intimate, nurturing atmosphere.

Participants can adjust the exercises to their physical needs and complete the training at their own pace.
