These movement classes emphasise the somatic experience of the moving self in the world. We will explore the body's fluidity, access to the agency of self through weight activation, and patterns of body connectivity. We will also explore the dynamics and spatial aspects of our movement potential. The class is based on the philosophy and practice of Bartenieff Fundamentals (part of the LBMS, (Laban/Bartenieff Movement System). This work focuses on embodiment through the experience of the moving body. Its intent is to shed light on both macro and micro patterns of the many layers of movement's intentionality.
