The Body Intelligence Workshop: Releasing Into Action

Saturday, April 7, 9am - 4pm
Sunday, April 8, 11am - 5pm

The Body Intelligence workshop returns to Dovetail Studios this spring for its third iteration! Immerse yourself in discovering the many embodied states between release and action in dance technique. We will investigate somatics and movement together in the studio, discovering ways to engage your whole self for more thoughtful, efficient, and satisfying dancing.

 Designed for advanced and professional dancers, this intensive workshop offers sessions with practitioners of four different modalities (Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais ┬«, Laban/Bartenieff Fundamentals, Myofascial Release) who are also dance professionals. There will be sessions of both pure somatic exploration and big juicy dancing, creating opportunities for looking in and dancing out.  Dive deeper and discover ways to break years of movement habits, while increasing your range and resiliency as a dancer, teacher and performer.

 Taught by: Christine Betsill, Heather Fraelick, Madeleine Reber, and Emily Stein
