Each morning will begin with Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® then we will move into Improvisation in both group and solo explorations. We will slowly open and explore healthy patterns of movement, first in our individual bodies, eventually working with the group to cultivate awareness and sensitivity.
Through quieting the mind we can relax and listen to the body and its rhythms, using this as a pathway to enter into focused dance. Working from this calm, attentive and available state we seek a balance in falling, redirecting and soaring, risking the unknown more fully.
We will investigate a variety of states that will allow us to bring greater depth and breadth to our dancing. Beginning gently and building momentum by adding specific skills, such as falling in spirals and sharing a plumb line, we will use guided dances to expand our levels of physicality.
This workshop welcomes all levels of dancers and movers.
