In this class we’ll learn to Walk to discover and create Space; Connect with each other and learn to Listen; Perform for each other and appreciate the resonances as we Converse. Each participant will practice finding comfort in Stillness, and from Stillness develop their own movements, gestures, and acts through exploration of specific themes. Music, Poetry, and Images will inspire us to connect with our own unique body’s voice, and with others. This class is opened to everyone willing to explore new possibilities of movement through the language of the body. Come with comfortable clothes and an open mind.
