Body Joy – Body Limits

Led by Annie Hanauer, these sessions aim to find joy in moving, approach dancing with curiosity and a generous spirit, and work towards full-bodied dancing with respect to each person’s physicality, interests and appetite to move.

We will play with improvisation structures, use touch to expand awareness and movement potential, and explore set movement phrases as a framework for dancing together, rather than executing or achieving something, with movement that focuses on momentum and gravity, flow versus interruption.  We will actively use our attention to track movement within our own bodies, in the space, and in relation to the people we are dancing with.

Deep exploration, full bodied dancing, and restfulness are all encouraged. As with all ID’s classes, dancers who identify as Deaf, disabled, or neurodivergent are all very welcome. Be in touch with ID if you would like to discuss access. Please come!

Friday’s class will take place in the Research Studio; all other classes will be in the Roof Studio. Annie is teaching at ID for the first time by invitation of our Programme Coordinator, Alison Thomas.
