**Minimum of 10 students needed by 9am on 10/21 for this workshop to move forward, so please register in advance!** Our bodies are built to move. This workshop seeks to investigate and practice a way of moving that is in harmony with the body's natural design and allows for optimal structural integrity, coordination, and cooperation during situations that we encounter in everyday life as well as in complex athletic dance sequences. In Dancer Self-Care, you'll take time to look inward. The focus will be on injury prevention and recovery through understanding joint anatomy and function while allowing oneself to be at peace with the reality of one's individual physicality. Through multi-directional movement sequences, somatic work, improvisations, studying anatomical models, palpation, and discussion, you observe the interplay of the body’s individual components in detail and refine listening and response tools. The speed and complexity will be adapted to each participant's needs, offering a gentle, democratic, and (w)holistic approach to body management and teaching. https://www.facebook.com/events/1597378283896750/
