Intelligence is defined by Oxford dictionary as “the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills”. Albert Einstein referred to intelligence as one’s ability to change. Dr Howard Gardner, an American developmental psychologist, derived the theory of  “multiple intelligence”.

According to Dr Howard Gardner, the types of intelligence includes:

1. Verbal-linguistic

2. Logical-mathematical

3. Bodily-kinesthetic

4. Interpersonal

5. Intrapersonal

6. Visual-spatial

7. Musical-rhythmic and harmonic

8. Naturalistic

9. Existential

(Please read Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences)




If intelligence is the flexibility of change and the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills, we essentially can integrate the various intelligences. In fact, we are already doing it! In solving problems to creating new ones, making art and designing how we exist, there is no way we do not use our intelligence once they are enhanced and interconnected.

By enhancing and combining these intelligences, we meet the needs of the Skills of the 21st Century or what some might call “soft skills”.

Relevant Intelligence

The 21st Century Skills require the interweaving of the multiple intelligence to give rise to a new brand of intelligence that is relevant and applicable at work, in social settings as well as within oneself.

Danspire gives to trainees the experience of their current mental and physical states and trains them to bridge their learning gaps. Then support is given to achieve the desired outcomes through anchoring and embodiment of skills and knowledge acquired.

The 21st Century Skills are enhanced first by the initiation of relevant intelligence.


 1. Emotional Intelligence

The ability to be aware and control one’s emotions so as to express oneself appropriately while not hurting others. This fosters relationships through empathy, care and sensitivity.


2. Social Intelligence

The ability to navigate and negotiate challenging interpersonal space or environments while maintaining one’s composure and situation in situ. An expert would be able to positively transform the total mood of the people and atmosphere by self-transcendence.


 3. Diplomatic Intelligence

The ability to assert one’s opinions or ideas, knowing when to say what, how to say it (by inspiring the deeper reasons within others that align with one’s goals) and having tact at the same time. It is the art of making a point without making an enemy.


Danspire Embodied Learning

This is a revolutionary training where one do not just sit and take notes but MOVE to:

1. Experience

2. Explore

3. Experiment

4. Embody

truths that are meaningful to him/herself.


Movement causes new pathways in the brain to formalise and when more neurons are interconnected the mindset shifts because new perspectives are gained. Perspectives alters perceptions just as perception reveals the breadth of one’s perspective. When more neurological pathways are formed and more neurons interlinked, information is accessed quicker and more associations are made. It helps one to see more, know more, feel more and to actualise more. The embodied process also etches information organically within the mind and body.



Expand your intelligence by learning how to relate better at home, at work and in public spaces through Danspire’s EMBODIED LEARNING.



The more you move, the more your mind expands.
