We will tune to our immediate internal and external environments, considering 'how do we locate' in our bodies? In these times? In each moment? Where do our voices live? Through exploration of the sound/movement voice/body connections, we explore and discover with listening as the foundation. We activate our senses, perceptions, imaginations.
This is a workshop in movement / sound improvisation open to all levels. Everyone welcome.
This movement experience is meant to connect you to the autonomy that is rightly yours! Through movement, stillness, sound, and being in community with one another we will collectively explore what it feels like to do whatever you want with your body in whatever way feels right to you.
The plan is as follows:

We are thrilled to introduce the first Junction Dance Festival, a three-day dance fest to expose and share with the community the wonderful talent of local amateur and professional dance artists. 40+ dancers from Vermont, New Hampshire and beyond will be gathering in downtown White River Junction for a whole week-end and will introduce you to their specific dance style and mode of choreographic expression.
Adrienne Maree Brown writes in Emergent Strategy, “what we attend to grows.” In spring, a time of awakening and growth, this holds a special truth. With turmoil both locally and globally, we must work to cultivate joy, we must choose to give our attention to joy. Yes, joy as smiles, as love, as possibility, as pure delight, and joy as encompassing our pain as well as our happiness. Our pain and sorrows in communion can birth a joy of collectiveness.
Finding ease and grace in the mind and body is accessible to all. Through gentle movement and mindfulness practices, we will explore tools that settle the nervous system, bring ease and efficiency to our movement and discover our own agency in integrating practices that sustain our well being.
Class is available to anyone and is ideally done on the floor. Other equipment that can be helpful: a belt, a cushion, a blanket.
