Thursdays 7-9pm 

This movement lab is half led, half freeform. Derived from studies in modern dance and improvisation, yoga, butoh, breath work, drawing, story and contemplation, the aim is to get familiar with your instrument, your self, rhythm and flow, our environment and community. The first hour a facilitated, continuously moving class (no previous dance experience needed). Second hour is Lights Out, a freeform dance.

Conscious freeform dance:

  • helps develop and refine the awareness of our own movement style
  • deepens our understanding of our anatomical and kinetic body
  • helps us learn how to interact and adapt in different environments dancing for fun, for healing and for performance
  • enhances our spatial relationship with others and the impact of those interactions
  • helps us learn how to heal physically and emotionally through movement and state of mind
