    Contemporary / Simonson Technique Description:



    Laurie's deep-rooted movement utilizes the torso with spirals and contractions which expand into movement through space. Her combinations of movement are both physically and mentally challenging. She hones in on the articulation of the body and clarity of movement while stressing musicality and phrasing. Laurie has been a teacher of Simonson Technique since 1979. Simonson Technique, developed by Lynn Simonson, is an organic approach to movement that prepares the body to dance in a way that is anatomically intelligent and somatically aware.
