Open Movement Practice
This open level movement class draws from elements of social, folk, and contemporary dance forms, as well as from ordinary action. Resisting the urge to transform ourselves into blank slates, we will abandon the term ‘neutral’ and uncover our bodies’ inherent knowledge and history. By using sensorial, perceptual, anatomical, spatial and imaginative pathways, we’ll amplify, morph and direct our individual movement patterning. We will play technical structures, improvisational concepts, choreographic frameworks and performing. Class will allow us to continuously activate our bodies through space, while discovering the kinesthetic sensitivity of a dynamic body-in-motion.

Online registration:
