In these classes, we will use observation, directed touch, and imagery to explore inner landscape and arrive at an embodied understanding of weight and lightness, breath and flow, and the three-dimensional material and energetic support given us by our organ content. We will learn to trust the innate capacity of our body for equilibrium and efficiency, and aim to taste an integrated openness and buoyant suppleness that generates fluid and easeful dancing.
These classes will share practice with artists undertaking the new MA in Creative Practice; numbers will be limited, arrive early to guarantee your place.
