Expressive arts work is usually quite gentle. We do not push or manipulate the process. We trust the process. Taking someone through an embodied, creative experience requires both inspiration and skill. In this master class, which is both theoretical and experiential, we will explore the phenomenon of “safely, entering the dance”. We start the process with body awareness, which focuses on vertical presence. Then, we will progress to movement which takes us into the space, the horizontal plane. And thirdly, we move on to dance where we let go and explore. In this training, we learn how to move into the experience of letting go in a way that feels both safe and playful.
