This workshop will introduce different principles from the field of somatic practices: Body Mind Centering® developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen and Ideokinesis by Mabel Todd and Barbara Clark. We will approach movement and dance from the inner perception of ourselves, through anatomy, visualization, and experience. We will work with gravity, weight and modulations of muscle tonicity which will also imply collaborating through touch and contact at times. Music and our voices will be part of our journey as well. We will explore different ways to widen the range of bodily potentialities and furthermore, of our creativity, by supporting our bodies in movement through time and space. In other words, let's make this dance floor the field of our own future dances!

Bring comfortable clothes to move in!

This class will not take place on 29th of October 2019.
