Online Series: Movement Ritual & Dance Explorations Igniting Aliveness ~ with Joy Cosculluela
4 Mondays, November 1 – 22, 10am-11:30am Pacific Time $60
In this workshop, we tune in to our kinesthetic sense and explore how we stand and move through space. We pay attention to our bodies’ internal sensations and external expressions and play with movement dynamics such as tempo, force, and spatial relationships. As we invite more movement possibilities in our dances, we also open to more aliveness in our daily lives.
Participants will explore structured movements devised by Anna Halprin that enhance range of movement and spark creative expression. Drawing and writing enrich our movement experiences. Please have a comfortable space to move. Open to all. No dance or art experience needed.
