Full Circle: Creative Explorations into

Art, Movement, Community, and Personal Expression

Class Description: 

Full Circle is an open, drop-in class designed for members of the Denver Community who are interested in developing a deeper sense of connection with themselves and their community through guided embodiment practices that draw from a wide range of expressive arts and experiential modalities. Each class is designed to provide a complete experience and all classes are loosely based on the five axes of the creative arc identified in Creative Systems Theory. Because of this, participants can attend just one class or come as many times as they would like.

Full Circle is a collaborative venture offered by both Dancing the Soul and Noeticus Counseling Center and Training Institute. Both organizations see a tremendous need in the Denver Metro Community for people to have access to facilitated embodiment practices that foster a deeper sense of personal embodiment while simultaneously cultivating a greater sense of inclusion and community connection. Though some of this can happen in movement-based fitness classes, the focus tends to be more goal-oriented. In Full Circle the focus is on personal process and community building using the tools of greater truth telling through deep listening to the wisdom of the body.

Some of the primary practices and ongoing influences we will be drawing from during our Full Circle classes are:

  • 5Rhythms
  • Art Therapy
  • Authentic Movement
  • Bartenieff Fundamentals
  • Brain Gym
  • Body-Mind Centering
  • Creative Systems Theory
  • Contact Improvisation
  • Continuum
  • Dance/Movement Therapy
  • Gestalt Therapy
  • Laban Movement Analysis
  • Psychodrama
  • Theater Improvisation
  • Yoga

No previous experience with expressive movement or dance improvisation is required to participate in Full Circle nor is it necessary to bring a partner. Just bring your willingness to explore a deeper sense of personal embodiment within a supportive community. The class is open to all men and women (and anyone in between) in the community who are interested in being part of a collaborative, creative process that invites the exploration of personal expression within the framework of a supportive community. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in and of course be ready to learn more about yourself through this guided class. 

Class Structure: 

Each class is an hour-and-a-half in length and generally follows this basic structure:

  1. Establishment of Personal Agreements and Community Commitments
  2. Embodied Personal Warm-Up with Community Connections
  3. Faciltated Exploration of Emerging Themes
  4. Guided Theme Development and Deepening
  5. Integrative Cool-Down and Meaning Making

Class participants are encouraged to move at their own level of comfort and ability. Variations and modifications to all movement explorations will be happily provided as needed to participants who request them.
