This is a blog about what it's like to find Contemporary Dance in a new community. I have lived, taught and danced in Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Miami, Chicago and now Washington D.C. As a teacher and performer I am always interested in finding out what people are interested in artistically and technically. Follow me as I discover Contemporary Dance performance, writing, critique and pedagogy in the various places I travel and teach. Aaaaand, I'm sure I'll let you know what I'm up to too.
This last week I had the pleasure of presenting my work in Laban Movement Analysis at the Bill Evan's Second International Conference on Somatic-Based Dance Education. The week was full of insights, and fabulous feedback. It was clear that many of the attending somatic practitioners we contributing great things to the field.
Several of the participants requested further reading based on my presentation regarding the spatial affinity for flow and the fourth dimension. I have since updated my website with all of my conference materials, videos, and additional illustrations. Feel free to peruse and try out the material.
