About the event

Dance, Engaging with Sensation is a place for bold curiosity of our self in motion. Including activities ranging from proprioceptive warm-ups to sequentially inverted phrases, Shannon prepares this class with the needs of a professional dancer in mind. She prioritizes sensation as a way to research quality, function, and form and offers suggestions that can lead to deep investigation inside of improvisational and guided phrase work. She believes in training for a responsive body to support the dynamics of falling off of vertical, redirection. and complex coordination practices. As a Franklin Method educator, she has been researching how to use imagery and functional anatomy as tools to invite participants to immerse themselves in inter-personal investigations in class - deepening one’s experience of self as a way to dance with others. This class is proposing a dance practice that brings pleasure into play; a serious sort of play that requires acute attention to the sensation of the dances that we do.

$12 artists + students/$15 general // $50 for a 5 class card  // $100 for a 10 class card (good for 6 months)
