Contemporary dance workshop with Jeremy Nelson

from 18 to 22 November 2014
at Graner.

Workshop for dance professionals: dancers, teachers, choreographers, advanced students.

The classes are influenced by Nelson’s 25 years of continuing study in the work of Barbara Mahler and Susan Klein, and more recent years of studies in Alexander Technique®, Bodymind Centering® and Feldenkreis Method.

The focus of the class is to integrate this investigation and alignment work into movement. We will focus mostly on our skeletal structure and its connections, allowing more mobility and suppleness in the superficial muscles and more efficient use of the floor. The intention is for each student to experience and develop the awareness of their own body and recognize its individuality.

We will incorporate a variety of approaches including improvisation and hands-on work in partners that help deepen our awareness and give us the opportunity to really experience some of these ideas in a physical way. We will then take our work into simple activities and movements in order to try and integrate this new awareness into our body’s movement patterns.

The second part of class will involve feeding this information into a more formally structured technique class. We will build from simple exercises to phrases of movement that involve moving more boldly and dynamically.
