Creating Dance Through Structured Improvisation

I am thrilled to, once again, teach the Creating Dance Through Structured Improvisation course for the UW-Madison Division of Continuing Studies. 

This 12-week course familiarizes students with various approaches for developing creative movement in the moment. This is not a space for creating or following choreography, but rather a creative environment and community, within which we experience the joy of your own authentic dance movements. Students become more comfortable with initiating, sharing, following, joining, leaving and, more generally, they gain confidence in their own creative expression. The course utilizes the knowledge from the practices of Body-Mind Centering, Authentic Movement and other somatic praxis within a Modern Dance context.
