Open Floor dance movement

My dance background is eclectic, and all sorts of influences show up in my approach to holding dance space, from the 5Rhythms of Gabrielle Roth to Authentic Movement, and encompassing the work of dance artists on the independent dance scene. Over the years, my own personal dance practice has involved cycles of moving, sounding, drawing and writing, and I am certified as an Open Floor dance movement teacher.

It’s important to me to create containers that are both robust enough to hold safely and elastic enough to include whatever arises. I will offer support if you get stuck – perhaps by moving with you, offering touch, or suggesting a focus for your attention – but I want to get out of the way as much as possible, so that what happens is your dance, your experience, and I am a quiet witness.
