    Class Description



    I begin by bringing attention to our internal environment, working primarily with imagery and breath. From here we focus on tools to access weight, space, gravity, and momentum. We hone and sensitize ourselves to various qualities and states by bringing awareness to the layers of our body (skin, bone, muscle, organs, etc). Special attention is directed to our senses, heightening all five, to become better at listening and dialoguing through movement. I demystify partnering by looking at the structural basics in the roles of basing and flying. Our progression into weight- bearing duets includes delving further into anatomical structures, destabilizing movement habits and assumptions, while recognizing and nurturing different personalities and individual predispositions. I encourage risk-taking and welcome unfamiliarity. Class culminates with physically robust partnering improvisations where students can draw upon their experiences throughout the class. I actively straddle the line between conscious, intellectual engagement, and abandonment, making space for movement and interactions that surprise and resonate.
