Dancing with People (and your Cosmic brain)
Contemporary dance class with Paul Laurey at Green Street Studios
Dancing, dancing, dancing. So many kinds of dancing. Always you dancing. In this class, we will begin with centering practices that activate core sources, kinetic imagination, and curiosity for clarity in movement. Dancing with partners offers infinitely adaptive potential for content and form. We will occupy and enliven various superpositions along the improvisation and choreography spectrum. Structures, scores, and inquiry are informed by the artist’s sense and cognitive neuroscience’s view of the physiology of sensing, feeling, and action as we creative and evolve our dancing consciousness. Class is oriented for experienced dancers, all curious dancers welcome. Awareness, skill, strength, nuance, energy, and connection promised.
