Riding the Bones of a Tiger
Release/Holistic Dance Technique
In these classes we will focus on moving from the core. In contemporary dance we define the center, the physical core, as something that helps us to stay grounded and three-dimensional in our movement, as well as a source of power for subtle and awakened presence. Released and defined at the same time. How do we transition from one to the other, does it ever stay the same?
Core can also mean the core tissues such as bones, organs, cells. We will relate to these structures through touch, imagery and movement developmental patterns. Bodywork allows us to explore and experience our inner structures, breathwork deepens our bodyconsciousness and sensitivity.
Riding the Bones of the Tiger also means riding the waves of our expression, our inner animal, using its power and archetypal forces. Combining this performance approach with technical material moves us into becoming a beautifully holistic, embodied dancer.
