Moving the Solo Body is a low-impact, introductory class for movers of all skill levels who are interested in developing facility with learning movement sequences, transitioning into and out of the floor, and integrating a variety of movement qualities into their dancing. Students will be guided through exercises and movement sequences inspired by various movement patterning systems and contemporary dance practices for the solo body. Light weight sharing may be included.
This class compliments contact improvisation, ecstatic dance and meditation practices by helping students attend to their breath and increase proprioceptive abilities. Kneepads are encouraged.
$10-20 drop in, $40 for full February session (3 classes), $50 for full April session (4 classes), OR $80 for both series. No one will be turned away for lack of ability to pay (message Megan to discuss.) Payments can be made directly to Megan in cash or via Paypal:
