Why do people come to practice?
"for a moving meditation"
"to pause work thoughts and mental noise"
"to lead with more intention (& adaptability)"
"to spend quality time with my friends"
"to really 'feel the music,' improve musicality"
"to get energized by physical activity"
"to feel more confident being creative"
"to be fully present and aware"
Often, when I've learned movement or dance, I was thinking about what I’m "supposed" to do - where my body parts are supposed to be & when. If that's "outside-in," this practice is "inside-out:" to ‘find’ the dance in the movements we always have... to intuit dance from how we walk, breathe, attend to our body, relate to each other, and take in the world through our senses. Because the process is "inside-out," each dance for each individual necessarily looks different.
Suitable for all levels of movement experience.
Come dressed comfortably & ready to dive in!
I love that this practice brings me
immediately & thoroughly
into my body and out of my head
where I often am.
Every dance is an opportunity
to bring more
+ creative confidence
+ balance and
into my daily life.
by individual and by moment
but we may start with...
centering, finding groundedness
moving with intention
feeling for our breath
how it moves through our body
and how breath moves us
noticing the dense space between us
the people in our orbit
how we’re always in communication
without touch and without words
finding a point of contact
listening, finding new paths
switching lead and follow so quickly
we co-create the dance together.
maybe finding balance
to share weight and lift.
maybe asking for support
and offering support to others.
...and while we may be in a duet,
we're always dancing with the whole room, sharing space, crossing paths,
and finding inspiration.
Here’s to dancing again soon.
