Fall 2023 Workshop in Austin, TX; September 18-29, 2023

"Finding coherence in movement and choreography for performers interested in both."

"My mind is my body in dance. This coherency sustains my practice. It is how I maintain and confirm my interest in movement, performance, and choreography. Tools will be offered to support access to your own experience of coherence while dancing."

I will guide a daily collective movement practice based on finding coherence through the cellular body. In addition to our morning practice we will collaborate on a simple yet challenging group work that will develop each day. Writing is part of material experienced.
