An introduction to a wide variety of physical skills useful for anyone interested in investigating their own physical potential for self-expression.

Techniques used will be derived from classical ballet, clowning, mime, sports, acrobatics, and improvisation. The work will promote a greater sense of physical awareness and imaginative possibility and will focus on mental and physical stamina, flexibility, and agility.

Together we will challenge our own preconceptions about body image and body language and work creatively and collaboratively to clarify abstract concepts through physical action. Evaluation is based on class participation and engagement with introduced topics and concepts. Students with any or no movement experience are welcome. Default grading option is Credit/No Credit.
