Fridays, Sept. 8-Dec. 15
By utilizing Authentic Movement and improvisations to reach a more meaningful and intuitive place from which to be and move, we will become powerful in our dancing and our lives. Authentic Movement is a closed-eyed, long-form improvisational exchange, where we can deepen our intuitive and intellectual selves. We work from equal parts mind, body, choice and impulse, finding new connections and finding true self. This class is open level.

Company Bio: Since 2013, the company has made Authentic Movement and improvisational forms the bedrock of the work. My current work, with long-term company members Eleanor Smith and Weena Pauly, takes form as a shifting and temporary monument to self, community and the present. We meld improvisational performance and practice together as an alternate, feminist model of working and presenting work.
