A dancer of today will need to be familiar with a broad horizon of different approaches to movement, beyond set vocabularies in singular styles of modern dance. In this class we will encourage movement from within each dancer in order to access each individual dancers most natural expression of dance. In order to develop a richness in texture of movement the dancer is challenged to explore the innate tendencies to movement as well as strategies of movement both familiar and unfamiliar.

The dancers will learn to work with the weight of the own body as well as that of the bodies of fellow dancers. Through work with constructed and deconstructed movement, awareness of the self in the space and movement is increased. A multitude of ways to access movement and sometimes emotion are explored to further develop the dancers ability to connect inner and outer worlds of expression.

I warmly welcome you to this journey!
