Space Dynamics 3
Starting from an internal awareness of breath and of the space and movement that it creates inside and outside our body, visualizing and sensing the support offered by our skeletal structure and the mobility given by our joints, we ll gradually expand our awareness to the overall space. We will play with the idea of dance as a conversation, alternating questioning and answering as tools for dialogue with the shared space and in between each other, from agreements to disagreements, we will play with possible solutions on how to investigate ways into embodiment of space from our core.
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.
