Mind, Body, and Creation

In case you didn't know about our summer intensive, the company has been working with Chelsea Gregory this week. Chelsea is teaching workshops in Body-Mind Centering, which helps us to understand the relationship between our body and mind as well as our bodies and the world around us. This type of work can be quite revealing and sometimes emotional when you release tension that you've been holding in a certain part of the body for a long time. The work also helps us discover different ways of moving, helps us break old habits, and helps us to step out of our comfort zones. You still have two more chances to take class with Chelsea. She will be teaching classes tonight and tomorrow focusing on Body-Mind Centering and social change. Come out and experience this wonderful workshop with the rest of the company.

In other news for the company, we started creating new work with Sue this afternoon, and I have no doubt that all of the information from the intensive will bring new life and creativity to the work we will create. I am so excited to be back in the studio, creating with my fellow dancers. Besides the Body-Mind Centering work with Chelsea, we will also be taking workshops with Ann Law Thursday through Saturday, so be sure to check those out as well. Ann's workshops will be related to risk-taking inside the art of dance-making, exploring new ways of empowering dancers to perform at their full potential through creating dances that aim for personal transformation. We hope you come out and share in these experiences with us.
