Discovering and Developing Authentic Movement

Movement is an international language. It transcends words and connects all individuals as a method of communication. Through the exploration of movement, we seek to gain a better understanding of ourselves and others. It can express physical, emotional, spiritual, and primal human experiences in a way that no other form of communication can.

In order to find and develop authentic movement, we will push past our movement comfort zones into new methods of moving. We need to learn to recognize and when needed, discard old movement behaviors and patterns to make room for new ones.

Using imagery and precise directives the class will attempt to find authenticity through movement with a focus on communication. It is possible to discuss and describe complex ideas through movement in a clear way. Come with ideas for current or future work, newer choreographies, and movement explorations. Bring a notebook.

Please note that the Free Flow Dance Centre is a vaccine mandatory facility this fall winter season. Proof of vaccination cards should be provided for in-person spots. Zoom is also available.
