We will lead an embodied practice in movement expression and creation using the somatic approach of Body-Mind Centering®. We will mine the materials of our bodies to generate material for our dance making. Utilizing the support of different body systems, we will explore the balance of internal and external awareness and intention in performative contexts. We will focus on the artist as performer and their role in conveying content while understanding their audience. Together we will cultivate a vitality of presence, embodied intelligence, creativity and organization to put guts in our dancing and our mind in our bodies.
