Class combines skills and applications of somatic researches that include release techniques and body mind practices such as Body-Mind Centering® systems and patterns of development and evolution, embodiments of Contact Improvisation, and tunings of somatic approaches within solo, duet (strong emphasis on partnering) and ensemble dancing. The interest and focus is in the very physical, sensorial and imaginative, and in discovering new challenges and risks within our movement – of both body and mind – towards improvisational and compositional processes.
