Event description
Möbius Dance - Company Class with Vanessa Grasse

About this Event

- CLASS

Vanessa's teaching is grounded in curiosity about how the body transforms as a result of imagination, active shifts of perception, attentional dynamics and a clear relational engagement with others and the environment, whilst finding clarity and playfulness in our awareness of the physiology and physics in motion. These dynamic classes will begin with guided explorations and suggested movement pathways that will support us to explore: center to periphery and periphery to center; nurturing our capacity to guide our inner flows of energy; the under-curves and over-curves of our swinging and spiralling movement; multidirectionality; listening to our fluid weight. As we access our full multidirectional dancing body we'll be encouraged to remain curious and attentive to our individual discoveries. We will also nurture our playful and relational selves by relating and responding to others around us.
