“I’m interested in sharing my ongoing research based on the application of Feldenkrais Method to dance training and performance making. I include aspects of Contact Improvisation practice in the form of touch, to highlight learning, and as a possible tool of physical communication. With the Feldenkrais Method we direct our attention to internal sensations, without judgment. Opened to potentiality, curious about new possibilities, we identify habits and clarify choices to promote efficiency, freedom and a sense of ease that involve our whole selves.
This specific way of cultivating awareness will affect our capacity to be present and alert, nourishing the journey from inside out while engaging in self-discovery and authenticity. We will find a felt sense of self that aims to be related to others and to the environment, to be experienced, reinforced and then transformed. This journey will give us a reinvigorating sense of ownership and pleasure in our dancing in which curiosity, playfulness and individual inquiries can be explored.”
Cancellations & refunds
Prices for classes are kept very low and are subsidized by ID in order to support artists to attend. To keep adminmanageable for our small team, we don’t offer refunds if you cancel or can’t attend a class, and we can’t transfer your booking to a different class/event. We hope this is understandable. If a class is cancelled or changed by ID however, we do offer refunds/transfers to everyone who has booked.
