Dance Class Offerings

“Movement Lab is a powerful tool. It has fueled so much of my self learning in both mind and movement. You will explore emotions, attachments, and energies through sharing movement connections with yourself and others. The style is uniquely a movement lab. I can enjoy dance and movement in many ways but nothing compares to an hour long trance with your subconscious. All accompanied with a warm community, caringly created space, and consistently amazing tracks. Grateful to have grown roots in this practice. ” student Amalia Daviero

The Dance Lab

What is the 3Bodies Class? How many three’s do you run into in your day? The purpose of this class is to use different tools found in improvisational dance to attend to the physical, mental and emotional body with the hope of creating unity in the individual and the recognition of our relationship with other. There is potential through a conscious approach to dance/movement to become more in tune with our active role in daily life as well as to develop the artistic expression for performance artists.

This evening class is for MovementLab company members and any community participants (trained or untrained lovers of dance) open to experiencing our process. We begin with drills and exercises for the physical body (based in many practices including Butoh, modern dance, yoga, Qi Gong), and story work to enhance our mental and emotional relationship to movement improvisation. Practice will include various elements of composition, use of props, sight/no sight, partnering, etc. Pen and paper is encouraged, and dance concludes with a drawing/sharing circle. No experience needed in dance to attend, just an open mind and heart to the possibilities unveiled through this moving meditation. Also a very beneficial class for dance artists looking to deepen their study in composition and the creative process. Retreats/residencies to come both in Taos, NM and abroad.
