Moving in Times of Uncertainty

As we have been experiencing more stress and anxiety due to the isolation and social distance during the Covid-19 crisis, our bodies and mind crave to find balance and harmony again. The importance of self-care is greater than ever. 

In this master class, we will incorporate elements from the healing practice of Shiatsu massage and Yoga to help dancers find a sense of calmness and grounding from which they can explore more movement potential while feeling free in their bodies.

Our dancing body is charged with energy and its continuous flow is essential to maintain a balanced and a healthy state of being. Through self-massage technique, stretches and quidded movement improvisation tasks, dancers will be able to release tension in the body, feel the flow of energy and discover more movement qualities.
