In this studio course open to everyone, we’ll explore dance as a way to deepen both our self-knowledge and engagement with others. We’ll delve into dance as meditation, using tools from ecstatic dance, yin yoga, and improvisation to establish a personal practice. We’ll also examine genre-bending performances occurring outside of theaters and study how dance reflects and can change (and whether it should try to change) contemporary issues, taking up such topics as power, class, race, and gender. In final creative projects, students take aspects of being and/or doing further into their own lives and communities.
