Class Description:

FasciaPLAY: Contact Improvisation that Educates and Activates the Body

I love when my dances have a particular experience that feels mutually connecting, incredibly nourishing to our bodies, and deeply satisfying. I love trying to create a classes based on refining and articulating how we create the conditions for this embodied experience. Using focused teaching, skill building, open play, and collaborative investigation we will all explore together this incredibly vast form of Contact Improvisation. I will draw from my background in Fascia Bodywork, Thai Massage, Meditation, and lineage of Contact Improvisation.
