"Why do we learn to center and ground?
To have the basis to take risks, to enter (center in) the unknown, to build our capacity for the unresolved so that we can spontaneously, extemporaneously, creatively unfold and
improvise in the present."

The joining of many disciplines, influences, and educations allows us to create and develop our own particular and unmistakable style of dancing and pedagogy. Breaking from rigidity of steps and memorization, we encourage students to develop improvisational skills through simple and dynamic techniques, achieve relaxed and released style, and most importantly, find new and liberating ways of relating, expressing, and communicating non-verbally with others.
Sessions Include but not limited to:
1. Qi Gong and Yoga to Center and Let the Energy Flow
2. Elements of Ballet to Build Axis, Connection to the Ground and Stronger Feet
3. Elements of Improvisation and Contact Improvisation: React to Partners, Music, and Surroundings
4. Tango Improvisation
"Dance can be approached as a direct and natural way to move without any personalized aesthetics imposed from an outside authority. Dance is not necessarily graceful, pretty, elegant, or spectacular. Dance can be grotesque, ugly, clumsy, funny, frightening, and conflicting ... When movement is liberated from constricting armor of stylized , pre-conceived gestures, an innate feedback process between movement and feeling is generated.”
