Soul, Emergent: Movement-based inquiry into what we long for

 —  —

What are you longing for? What do you fear? In this collective moment of increased health concerns and growing acknowledgement of systemic racism and deep injustice - along with a very high stakes election looming in America - we may find ourselves in frequent negotiation with our hopes and fears. Drawing on tools of empathic communication and movement-based storytelling, Choreographer and Transformational Facilitator Sasha Soreff will guide conversation and dance creation around how to give empowered expression to both. No movement experience is necessary. All movement can be done seated. Whatever range of motion and mode of expression feels authentic and comfortable for you is welcome.

Celebration and Mourning, Conversation and Movement

 —  —

Reimagine: Life, Loss & Love Festival

In these intense times, it is easy to get overwhelmed and lose connection with that which matters most to us. Acknowledging moments of joy and experiences of loss and grief supports our nervous systems and enhances our sense of self-connection. Adding movement of any size helps us access our hearts and bodies. The combination of creative expression and empathic communication in community creates a powerful opportunity for deeper understanding and ultimately, healing. Choreographer and Transformational Facilitator Sasha Soreff offers a gentle warm up, followed by discussion and movement exploration of that which we celebrate and mourn, individually and collectively. All movement invitations are non obligatory. Everything can be done seated, and can be enacted in any way that feels good to the participant, seated or otherwise. $0-18 suggested donation

Contemporary Dance and Choreographic Skills Online Class - weekly class

 —  —

Gibney Dance

Contemporary Class- 1st and 3rd Mondays

Being in community and moving are so vital to our well-being and sense of possibility – now more than ever. This class offers both: we’ll do a thorough warm up drawing on modern dance, Simonson technique, and kinesthetic anatomy principles. The class includes stretching and a range of fluid and rhythmical movement. There will be an invitation to generate and contribute movement of your own (as you feel comfortable!). All movement can be done seated or standing. Movers of all dance backgrounds welcome.

Choreographic and Creative Expression - Class on 2nd and 4th Mondays

This class invites us to cultivate our authentic creative voices. The class begins with a brief warm up and then shifts into learning foundational choreographic skills, including how to translate stories and language into movement. Both drop in and regular participants are welcome. There will be stand alone exercises as well as an opportunity to develop one's own creative project over time, in movement and whatever art forms call to each participant. Additionally, skill building in how to offer supportive feedback to artists, based on Liz Lerman's Critical Response Process will be offered. Movers of all dance backgrounds welcome.

Suggestion Contribution: $10, you are welcome to attend $0 or $5 or another amount.
