Teaching at Gibney Dance Monday Mornings

We will dive into the deep end of our own great unknown with Authentic Movement and improvisation. Authentic Movement is an expressive improvisational movement practice that allows a group of participants a type of free association of the body. It’s a seemingly simple form of self-directed movement, usually done with eyes closed and attention directed inward, in the presence of at least one witness. Movers explore spontaneous gestures, movements, and stillness, following inner impulses in the present moment. Witnesses gain attunment to their expectations and to how and what they see. Both enter a space of generosity, care and vulnerability. Then working in this newly opened inter personal space, more formalized directed improvisational exercises push our boundaries of awareness, creative power and how we all can do, think and see.

This is a friendly space to meld feeling, knowing and moving and re-assign hierarchies between expertise and honesty. Open level workshop.
