Class Description: How do we, as dancers and artists, understand and expand the perspective from which we move? We can learn steps, we can navigate improvisational structures, but how can we attune to our habits, desires, stories, and choice-making tendencies in order bring a deeper awareness to our personal agency as movers? Using paradoxically simple improvisational structures and self observation/conversation we will enrich our understanding of what we dance and how we move.
