Klein Technique™
The work in class engages us in a process that facilitates changes in the way we see, use, and relate to our bodies moving in space. We work with the deep connections closest to the bones, particularly in the pelvis, which frees the upper body to move with ease and expression. Working on the level of the bone, we find better functionality, creativity, and well-being. // REBECCA DAVIS TEACHES FELDENKRAIS MARCH 22 & 24. JOANNA KOTZE TEACHES MARCH 29 & 31.

Alexander Technique
Alexander Technique looks at the way we carry out our intentions. Often we use a process that is habitual, unconscious, and counterproductive. The technique offers a practice of staying open and alert in the moment, observing our familiar tensions and choosing to move without them. Beginning with the assumption that we are perfectly designed for movement and balance, we engage our mind to undo layers of interference, creating opportunity for change.

Contact Improvisation – The Basics
Contact Improvisation, initiated by dancer Steve Paxton in 1972, is a dance practice that plays with the physics between bodies and gravity. Using partnering skills such as rolling, releasing, weight exchange, falling, lifting and catching, and expanding range of spatial choice, the practice helps one move within sensation and disorientation, access moveable supports and tune to the use of touch, momentum, resistance and flow in physical contact as well as in solo play. This is an introductory class for those with little to no experience with Contact Improvisation or those who would like to revisit the basics.

The Athletics of Intimacy, Improvisations
Class combines skills and applications of Body-Mind Centering® systems and patterns of development and evolution, practices of Contact Improvisation, and tunings of somatic approaches within solo, duet (strong emphasis on partnering) and ensemble dancing. I am interested in the very physical, sensorial and imaginative, and in discovering new challenges and risks within our movement – of both body and mind – towards improvisational and compositional processes.

Witchcraft – A Corporeal Practice
JUNE 7, 14 & 16 ONLY | Several years ago changes in my health and body shifted the ways I approach dance and daily life. Without answers from doctors or bodyworkers, I began looking to witchcraft and earth-based rituals as somatic practices of integration, acceptance and healing. For this workshop we will look to astrology and the lunar calendar, as well as our own unique and defiant bodies to generate restorative movement. Astrological influences have a visceral effect, so we will simply be tapping into what is already there to generate somatic healing. Come with an awareness of something you might like to shed, heal and/or embrace.

Without answers from doctors or bodyworkers, I began looking to witchcraft and earth-based rituals as somatic practices of integration, acceptance and healing. For this workshop we will look to astrology and the lunar calendar, as well as our own unique and defiant bodies to generate restorative movement. Astrological influences have a visceral effect, so we will simply be tapping into what is already there to generate somatic healing. Come with an awareness of something you might like to shed, heal and/or embrace.

Contact Improvisation – The Basics
Contact Improvisation, initiated by dancer Steve Paxton in 1972, is a dance practice that plays with the physics between bodies and gravity. Using partnering skills such as rolling, releasing, weight exchange, falling, lifting and catching, and expanding range of spatial choice, the practice helps one move within sensation and disorientation, access moveable supports and tune to the use of touch, momentum, resistance and flow in physical contact as well as in solo play. This is an introductory class for those with little to no experience with Contact Improvisation or those who would like to revisit the basics.
