1-day intensive SRT workshop with Laurel Jenkins Tentindo
1-3 Skinner Releasing Class + Improvisation
3:30-5 Skinner Releasing Class
(SRT) is the pioneering approach to dancing that has evolved from the simple principle that when we are releasing tension and habitual holding patterns, we can move more freely, powerfully, and articulately. In Releasing, spontaneous movement evoked by guided poetic imagery, music, and sound enables a creative exploration of technical principles such as multi-directional alignment, suppleness, suspension, economy, and autonomy. Releasing engages the imagination and involves the whole self, which integrates technical growth and creative process. The workshop will culminate in a dynamic group improvisation session. Class is open to both professionals and beginners.
