10:00-1:00pm Mind Reading
Learning how to tap into instincts again. Moving with and through more complex coordinations. Using the Power of Pause to make even more happen. Telling stories. Lots of eye contact. Living in another person’s skin. We’ll work on using elusive, ephemeral narratives that pass by in an instant to unfold the dance with our partners. We’ll grow the practice of constantly making change happen to keep dealing with the present moment. And we’ll hopefully spend some quality time working on our solo dance and how that turns into duets and more.
2:30-5:30pm - Lead & Follow
A whole session on the inner workings of using touch to guide. Spending long amounts of time with eyes closed while our partners guide us around the room. Practicing techniques for leading with intention, but being available to change and misdirect. Working on being led and how to remain open, but not passive. And then eventually blurring the lines between both roles. I want us to be honest about which role we are each more comfortable with, honor it, and then exercise balance by strengthening our opposing inclinations.
