Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT) is a a somatic approach to dance training developed by Joan Skinner. It combines technique with creative process, and has greatly influencing contemporary dance aesthetics. By cultivating effortlessness, one begins letting go of unnecessary holding in the physical self, gaining flexibility, efficiency, freedom. Through guided imagery, music and hands-on partner studies the practice facilitates a deep kinaesthetic experience of movement and in time a shedding of outer layers. It is an experiential, intuitive approach that utilizes imagery as a powerful tool for transformation. Open to all, with or without formal movement training.
