This is a workshop series that taps into some of the cerebral aspects of dance and movement. This is centered around building the ability to tell powerful stories through motivated movement. A combination of theory and practice where I will be working on concepts like Motivation, Presence, projection, empathy, gestures, personalization and honesty in movement. This workshop focuses on shedding light on some of the often overlooked layers of dance through research, analysis, experimentation, exploration, and practice.
