with Morgan Thorson
$15 in advance/ $20 day of workshop
In GET TO KNOW YOURSELF you will practice dancing your whole self with attention and imagination. We will focus on releasing tensions through the embodiment of active images and hands-on exercises called partner graphics. This work is meant to open awareness, access alignment and coordination, and enliven our imaginations. It will also reveal how we limit ourselves with habitual thought and physical patterns. The results of this work will be power, grace and deeper understanding of how and why you dance.
