WORKSHOPS AND CLASS OFFERINGS
EMBODIMENT THROUGH DANCE MOVEMENT THERAPY
Saturdays 12-1:45pm at Gibney Dance Studios, 280 Broadway
Embodiment Through Dance Movement Therapy is a class designed specifically for dancers and performers of all kinds, either still in training or freshly graduated, as an opportunity for them to explore their inner worlds and safely, curiously, and creatively investigate their relationships to their own sense of embodiment.
The intense stressors of professional dance training and performance are unfortunately known to most of us. What is still sorely lacking - although slowly gaining ground - are enough practices for students and young professional that provide support and holistic approaches to their creativity in ways that address the full human within the artist.
In this class participants are invited to reconnect with their own sense of embodiment in a safe and therapeutically informed setting, through practices inspired by DMT tools and techniques, including but not llimited to LMA, to Bartenieff Fundamentals and Authentic Movement.

My improvisation workshops are centered around individual exploration of movement, creativity, and personal expression, with a focus on cultivating body awareness, full embodied presence and witnessing what happens within. Participants are lead through a series of scores that invite creative expression, reflection, not-knowing, the experience of the body as a tool for transformation, and cross-modal exploration, including breath and voice (and at times writing and drawing). These workshops are open to anyone who holds a curiosity around movement and its infinite wisdom, its intrinsic and infinite knowledge of our whole being, its memory banks, and its healing power.
