Bare Bones - Fundamentals Of Movement - Part 1


Its the end of summer, lets allow our dance to yield into the earth to find a moment pause and renewal.  To find the shapes and the contour of our bones. The effortless yield and push into the earth and out into life. To reach, articulate, support and flex. To stand, walk, run, shape and crouch. Lets dance together.


The fundamental ground of exploration for these classes arises from our interest and enquiry into the fundamentals of our bodies and the nature of presence. Move, dance, explore, express.


The Classes Include:

In these classes we explore ourselves, our dance in an unfolding inquiry into our nature as human beings.


Each class begins with 20 minutes of your own time to move and to arrive as your body desires held with dj’d music.


Followed by a led dance and movement exploration. Each class will have a focus where we will explore a part of the body, a developmental pattern or a movement principle. We look at anatomical picture, images from nature or read poetic text to inspire our dance explorations.


We Share in a circle or in pairs. Hearing others experiences can validate own own reflection process and lead us towards appreciating ourselves and each other.

This class is for everyone who loves to move. Whether you are a dancer on paper or a dancer in your heart this is a class for you.

Come and be a dancer in your body!!!


“Just the pleasure of moving and the pleasure of using your body is, I think, maybe the main point. And the pleasure of dancing with somebody in an unplanned and spontaneous way, when you’re free to invent and they are free to invent.” - Steve Paxton
