The Spaces in Between
When dancing in contact with each other our kine spheres merge, creating a relationship that supports our bodies moving in space where our individual structures organize themselves in a collaboration to defy gravity.
In this warm up class I would like to pay attention and explore the space ‘in between’ our bodies moving, developing and awareness of the contextual space around us as well as of our individual spaces and how these influence each other in the overall dance.We will explore this through exercises with voice and movement, allowing sound to be part of the dance.
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.
