This is a process-oriented dance class focused on how we experience ourselves moving.  The aim is to develop self-awareness as a tool for creating and refining our own dance practices: widening the range of movement vocabulary and qualities; improving ease, efficiency and flow in movement; recovering from and avoiding injury.

The impossibility of a purely physical training is assumed from the start. The class encourages critical and conceptual interrogation of the many discourses that shape our experience. The invitation is to enter into a perceptual dialogue with ourselves in which we become the experts of our own experience.

The classes may include material from experiential anatomy, ideokinesis and the Feldenkrais Method. They are part interactive lecture, part guided and part open movement exploration. The invitation is to enter into a perceptual dialogue with ourselves in which we become the experts of our own experience.
