Together we will research skills to find a falling practice full of creative potential. Dance using your own experience and impulses
In this second of 4 workshops, we will explore ways to create a supportive foundation to test our edges , balance and recuperative strategies. This class is a step toward building a gentle falling practice. We will warm up our bodies with a grounding self care practice before exploring what falling means to us with a series of improvisational activities. We welcome discussion at the end.
Please bring cushions and bolsters. It may be useful to be by a couch or other supportive structures. Set up your space in a way that will support your safety and creativity. Please practoice safety, and listen to your own impulses.
