Embodiment of Dance: A Journey into Texture & Rhythm w/ Amy Yates
Sunday June 24th 3-4:30pm $30
This dance class is influenced by the 5Rhythms class, Gaga (the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin), and years of Amy’s own personal movement investigation and dance celebration. From Gaga, Amy learned about the power of physical listening, the freedom found from curious self-investigation, and the many nuances and potentials within our physical selves. Similarly, 5Rhythms allows for a connection to different textures and qualities of existence, and teaches that life is simply breath in motion. Finally, Amy has been inspired, countless times, by the power of dancing freely alongside others. The unique combination of these philosophies and lessons has birthed “Embodiment through Dance: A Journey into Texture and Rhythm”.
In this class, we will:
-Connect to and embody our authentic selves
-Increase our physical presence and ease our minds
-Connect to life force energy
-Explore and discover physical nuance to deepen the quality and range of our life experiences
-Celebrate our own and each other’s bodies and spirits through dance
-Connect to unbounded joy and child-like curiosity
-Get a good work out
-Release physical, emotional and mental tension
