Axis Syllabus: Humans
The form of our bodies evolved over millions of years in response to the need to move in our environment. These forms are a map of our movement history and a key to our movement present. In these classes we learn to read the shapes of our bones and tissues and apply our understanding to functional physicality. Anatomical study leads us into improvised and set movement studies. Exploring our inheritance with animal sensitivity and playful expansivity.
