Topf Technique/Dynamic Anatomy®

Jaime Ortega Ian Douglas

TOPF TECHNIQUE/DYNAMIC ANATOMY® WITH JAIME ORTEGA

WED 10am-12pm

Movement Research, 122 Community Center

150 1st Ave, Courtyard Studio

The Topf Technique/Dynamic Anatomy® provides pathways into deeper perception, heightened awareness and expanded movement possibilities for dancers and movers of all genres and abilities. Also known as 'Experiential Anatomy', the Topf Technique/Dynamic Anatomy® guides students to explore physical expression and creativity while finding new relationships with both inner and outer space. Using visuals, touch, breath, specific sequences and improvisation to trigger imagination, the class helps students reimagine 'the body' and uncover new pathways to movement that is highly personal, deeply grounded, centered and refined. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to understand the anatomy underlying their primary dance or other movement techniques, gain a deeper understanding of their own movement preferences, work through pain/stiffness/injury, or expand their options for generating choreography and building their unique movement vocabulary.
