In this work, the form and composition of our ongoing interactions with our environment are considered as "danced composition." The work can be applied directly to performance and is open to anyone who is interested in movement as a language for communication. This workshop offers practical tools for researching our functional movement and reflexes. Specific exercises look at the details inside of ordinary movement: running, walking, standing, crawling, reaching, stillness...and more. This work is a viewpoint and approach to movement that considers the body's ongoing interactions with the environment as material for dance. The exercises are designed to inspire our imagination and create mystery, questions, music, and geometry.

Our Sliding Scale
The fees to attend Earthdance Jams and Workshops are priced on a sliding scale. Please pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This allows others who need to pay less the opportunity to attend.
The Professional Rate is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Professional Rate level also helps us offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend.
The Full Rate is for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of operating costs.
The Subsidized Rate is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge.
