Movement Creation

This workshop is a choreographic exploration, guiding you through a composition process to take away your own short, unique phrase of movement. Topics include: improvisation exercises (stimulate new pathways of thought and movement by challenging default patterns of body and mind), a selection of technical concepts from contemporary dance (principles of alignment, shaping the body in space, floor work), aesthetics, and dynamics. We will mainly focus on the body itself, but there will be some time to apply the knowledge to your hoop, if you wish.
