We will begin by investigating balance as a dynamic act, through the systems of the body in an effort to increase our physical intelligence.
Through attentive and dynamic listening we will explore balance in standing and falling, in responding and redirecting and in flight.
As we gain confidence and trust in our physical intelligence, we can relax into readiness, be more at ease and vulnerable, and this open, vulnerable and ready place is where our creativity is unleashed.
Class exercises are strongly rooted in functional anatomical principals that emphasize clarity, momentum, precision, and release to build kinesthetic awareness necessary for the complex and athletic dancing that follows.
We will also look at movement, a nuro-mucular-skeletal event, through the lens of Ideokinesis, a somatic form originally developed by Mable Todd. We will spend time developing a better understanding of our structure, how it functions and ways to apply that knowledge as movers and thinkers.
