Lucia Walker

Class description | Morning Class | 7 - 11 October 2019

Seeing the world move, sensing our own movement and letting go of what restrains us from thinking, feeling and moving freely. The class will offer games, exercises and scores to encourage us to “wake up” to the present moment and to our strength, awareness and pleasure in dancing. A particular focus will be on observing the flow of our attention so we can develop a consistent quality of connection with ourselves, the dance, other people and the space
