- Dancing with the Body-in-Mind
This approach to somatic dance is from 35 years of teaching BodyMind Dancing a form of dance drawing on principles from Dynamic Embodiment. DE is a blend of the analytic yet enlivening work of Laban and Bartenieff with the deep internal work of Body-Mind Centering. We will focus on finding different movement dynamics through exploration of glands, circulating fluids, and organs. We will volumize and become as "Big as We Are." The DE approach is intent on finding the support for standing up to injustice and the voice of artistry all wrapped up into one.
*this workshop is in combination with "roots and rivers" by Zoe Solomons that will start after Martha's wksp from Tuesday - Thursday.
