With Connor Kelly

This experiential workshop will integrate both dance/movement and art therapies processes with music into the creation of an individual life size body map. We will explore through various dance/movement therapy approaches the body on its own terms. These will include principles from Laban Movement Analysis/Bartenieff Fundmentals, Authentic Movement and dance improvisation along with other core dance movement therapy tools. We will explore our body parts as they relate to the whole, basic core connectivity patterns, our three dimensionality, our inner imaginings and our outer expressivity. Between each dance/movement practice there will be time to explore through visual arts media on the body map. Participants can photograph their work as it evolves and take home for further explorations if they choose.
