This workshop is for experienced and professional dancers. Dancers constantly hone their skills in order to perform at a high level. This Feldenkrais workshop demonstrates how the continuous pursuit of excellence can be supported and refined by the development of ease, nuance and attentive listening to the whole self, both in movement and at rest. Using Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® lessons as the what, Belinda He invites dancers to investigate the how, harnessing and integrating the forces coming from the floor for precise and virtuosic dancing.

Join us to explore the lucidity that becomes available when you are anchored by the question: How am I doing this? Investigate your habitual patterns when encountering challenging movements, and enhance your potential with new possibilities and strategies. Experience the functional use of your body, and enjoy an opportunity to attend to the how.

“As a professional dancer, I have benefited greatly from Belinda’s work. By the end of class, it’s as if I am already dancing, without ambition or effort. She has a unique understanding of dance and the intensity of what is required of a dancer’s body.” – Annie Rigney, dancer
