In this introductory level course, we’ll work to develop a movement practice that centers both self care and togetherness. This class will draw on a variety of contemporary practitioners and methods, relying on somatosensory feedback to access availability, spaciousness, presence, and pleasure both individually and collectively. Students will investigate basic patterns of choreography, experimenting with principles of velocity and momentum and exploring personal and shared movement impulses. Assigned readings, screenings, and writing assignments will complement and support our physical practice. Students will be evaluated based on attendance, successful completion of assigned work, depth of engagement during class and with course materials, and the expansion of their individual movement capacities. All class meetings will take place in-person and on campus. Participants of diverse abilities, needs, and backgrounds are encouraged to enroll. Dance experience is welcomed, but not necessary.

None.
