Event description

Description

The Dance Convergence is a meeting of The Axis Syllabus and Feldenkrai in Dance. The Dance convergence melds sensory attributes of small refined body motions to larger movements in highly satisfying dances. Mimicking the teacher or visually following choreography is not necessary. Feldenkrais® ATMs reveal sensory details of movement while the lens of the Axis Syllabus offers a way to look at skeletal biomechanics and physics of an articulating body in motion. We will convergence into exhilarating dances.

The Dance Convergence is 3 weekends and 30 hours of classes total. You can take all 3 weekends, 1 weekend or Drop-in each day. Eventbrite's price is for the first weekend and can not be broken down to pay per weekend. Eventbrite has transaction fees. Contact me, I'll send full registration information. Pay by check & there are no fees. Questions: 8 3 1 . 2 3 4 . 4 8 7 0 miranda@baymoon.com

The Spinal Engine ♦︎ October 26, 27, 28, 2018

Feldenkrais® ATM Dance ♦︎ Friday Saturday Sunday: 1:00-3:00

The Axis Syllabus Dance ♦︎︎ Saturday Sunday: 3:15 - 5:15

The spine acts as a wave, an engine and a spring. The spine’s shape and structure reveal the potential for tri-directional motion that support contra-lateral limb movements, skeletal undulations along with compression and rebound for receiving and launching weight. These notions will drive our inquiry as we sense into, explore and study the details of the dancing spine.



Sculpting First Steps ♦︎ February, 22, 23, 24, 2019

Feldenkrais® ATM Dance ♦︎ Friday Saturday Sunday: 1:00-3:00

The Axis Syllabus Dance ♦︎ Saturday Sunday: 3:15 - 5:15

We will sense into the feet as articulators and supports while the body participates in the everyday actions of walking, turning, standing, and crouching. Embracing oscillations, de-segmentation and unification of body masses over a small base of support will be some principles explored while we hone our awareness to locomote and dance across the floor.



Arms as Wings & Supports May 3, 4, 5, 2019

Feldenkrais® ATM Dance ♦︎ Friday Saturday Sunday: 1:00-3:00

The Axis Syllabus Dance ♦︎ Saturday Sunday: 3:15 - 5:15

There is potential for arms to offer buoyancy, delicate articulations and sound skeletal support while moving through space. In this class we will slow down to explore and harvest sensory details of arm use for dancing while reaching, supporting and accelerating or decelerating our body in motion.


*The Axis Syllabus is a resource manual to map complex human movement. Miranda uses the Axis Syllabus in dance while applying anatomy and biomechanics to harness kinetic energy for dancing with ease and exhilaration. She aims to harness the sensory apparatus to garner awareness and movement principles for safe daily use and that can lead up to high-performance physicality.

*Feldenkrais® ATM’s employ a collection of small movements through sensory tactics to discover a larger whole movement. The aim is to gain body control through the sensory apparatus while eliminating excessive will or effort and while embracing ease and comfort in the body for simple to complex movement.
