About the Event

A deep dive into the felt experience of the body as a resource for dance making, this eight-part series is for anyone interested in dance as a creative practice or a source of well-being. Experiencing the infinite creative possibilities that can be generated from the inside out, participants will tap into their own unique movement vocabularies, methodologies, and internal rhythms. Each class will consist of guided movement meditation, improvisation, reflection, and sharing.

Over these eight weeks we will looks at themes including:

The Body as Fluid-Filled Membrane — form emerging from flow, the primordial experience

The Surface of the Body as a Place of Contact — spatial patterns and gesture

The Body as a Membrane Bathed in Fluid — the substance of space 

Inner Flow — membrane as stillness, fluid as motion 

Temporal Patterns — the somatic essence of waves

Naval Radiation — naval as center, limbs as radii

Condensing/Expanding — dynamic shifts, textures, and densities

Core and Periphery — curiosity, desire, fantasy, reach
