Monday Movement Series features a rotation of improvisation-based practices.  This season’s MMS includes Authentic Movement, Contemplative Dance Practice,Contact Improvisation and Underscore.

Authentic Movement is an improvisational technique in which a witnessed person moves with eyes closed for an extended period of time responding to impulse alone. Deepening our intuitive and intellectual selves, we can become a dancing whole entity: equal parts mind, body, choice and intuition. This class is for anyone who wants to stop and take a breath, to look at what you have been taking for granted, to expand then release, meld feeling and knowing, re-assign hierarchies between expertise and honesty and to learn and be humbled by the great unknown.
