Dancing Grounding Tuning

Inside improvisational and set technical structures, challenges and phrase work, this class hopes to offer an experience of how movement might live rather than become positioned. The base material for physical tuning and practicing will explore sensation, instinct, and the inherent musicality inside the body in order to investigate what is movements language; to consider technique and our own movement desires as languaging – as a conversation with dance.
