An Exploration of Connection through our Senses.
This is something you are engaged with at every dance in every moment. It is a rich landscape that can be new and fresh in every dance you have for ever – lets take some time to put some emphasis here and feel what wakes up through connecting from our senses.
Lee – I work with movement and dance as an enquiry into the present moment. Fascinated by dance as a metaphor for life I have used Contact Improvisation, somatic movement, non-stylised movement and self enquiry as a vehicle to explore on the dance floor life, with freshness moment to moment. Lee co created Embodied Presence in 2012 and has been facilitating classes, workshops and retreats in the UK, Europe and Australia.
A jam is an informal gathering of dancers. There is no teacher, but space and time to develop skills and confidence. You are free to dance, rest, or sit and watch, as you wish. The jam provides an opportunity to explore and integrate techniques you have learned, and to find your own routes into dancing.
At some jams a teacher will facilitate a score to follow such as a focused (silent) jam, the Underscore (developed by Nancy Stark-Smith), or a blindfold (or eyes-closed) jam, this will normally be advertised via our regular mailout – so sign-up if you want advance notice.
