Join Tiana Hemlock-Yensen for a morning of deep exploration of the moving body

This three hour workshop gets you moving and dancing from the specificity of your own body. We will warm ourselves up doing some deep alignment practices and then begin bringing them into the space using imagery and awareness to become soft, elastic and playful in our relationship to our bodies and space. We will encounter ourselves dancing through tasks and directives that allow us to become curious, about different places to move from and how we begin to make choices in our discoveries in space.
This is a workshop for every body, no dance knowledge is necessary. We will spend time exploring the structure and the joints of the body, the bodies connection with the floor and the way that our use of the eyes and gaze can expand our curiosity and awareness to new and uncharted physical territories.
Please bring comfortable clothing, an open mind and your body, of course.
