The Art of Somatic Dance Making: Depth to Surface - An 8-Week Series
with Tal Halevi
A deep dive into the felt experience of the body as a resource for dance making, this eight-part series is for anyone interested in dance as a creative practice or a source of well-being. Experiencing the infinite creative possibilities that can be generated from the inside out, participants will tap into their own unique movement vocabularies, methodologies, and internal rhythms. Each class will consist of guided movement meditation, improvisation, and reflection.

 

 

Over these eight weeks we will looks at themes including:
The Body as Fluid-Filled Membrane — form emerging from flow, the primordial experience
The Surface of the Body as a Place of Contact — spatial patterns and gesture
The Body as a Membrane Bathed in Fluid — the substance of space
Inner Flow — membrane as stillness, fluid as motion
Temporal Patterns — the somatic essence of waves
Naval Radiation — naval as center, limbs as radii
Condensing/Expanding — dynamic shifts, textures, and densities
Core and Periphery — curiosity, desire, fantasy, reach


DATES: January 27-March 17, 2021
TIME: Wednesdays, 12-1:30PM EST
PRICE: $120 for the series or $20 per class
