Embodying Duality

I am currently fascinated by how opposing forces are working together to create harmony in  the dance. I experience it in relating with gravity, with the natural expanding and contracting of the body, in relating to myself and to my dance partner/s, in the coexistence of technique and improvisation… how they merge in the three-dimensionality of the dance itself.

In this class, we will work with apparent dual “forces” looking at how they come together, how can we observe the process and become aware of it, in support of our dance.  I will be sharing my discoveries, what my body and my practice have taught me; while leaving plenty of space for exploring, dancing and being playful.
