“Movement never lies. It is a barometer telling the state of the soul's weather to all who can read it.” -Martha Graham. Dance can be one of the simplest forms of communication, or one of the most complex. In this workshop we will study the various methods of conveying story, feeling, and aesthetic vision through the lens of classical dance, eastern medicine tradition, and authentic expression. Practice, drills, and combinations will be our vehicle, with group work, collaboration and personal expression our process. Focus on working from the core, working on the floor, arms and upper body, and laser-beam line extension.
