At the root of all the various manifestations of dancing lies the common impulse to resort to movement to externalize emotional states which we cannot externalize by rational means.

Sonoma State University
1801 E Cotati Ave
Rohnert Park, CA

Mondays/Wednesdays
1-2:50pm

August 23th through December 4th, 2017

Class begins with a centering body/mind practice inspired by yoga therapy and stress management techniques including breath awareness, body awareness, meditation, and mindful movement.

We’ll progress into an intermediate to advanced contemporary technique class that develops clarity and power in various movement patterns such as body isolations, sequential movement, and contrasting levels of release and tension.

We will develop the strength and skill needed to safely perform inversions and floor work as well as the uninhibited quality necessary for developing our own creativity and improvisation abilities.
