Introduction to Accessible Movement description.
Over the course of 9 weeks, we will explore contemporary dance, improvisation, and choreography. We will find ways to move with ourselves, in pairs, and in groups while expressing creativity through the use of impulse, flow, time, and weight. Everything can be done seated, standing or on the floor; the invitation is always to be true to what feels best in the moment
Session attendance is limited to 10 spots per workshop.
