Kinesthetic Empathy Through Dance

How can we teach children, and each other, to "tune-in" as we move together? How do we come to understand how to shift our bodies in space while attuning to other(s)?  Kinesthetic empathy, as a way to invite one to dance in relationship, is the topic of this workshop. Explore how being-in-relation becomes the dance. Concepts found in Laban Movement Analysis and Somatic Dance Practice, around the notion of relationship and physical attuning, and how that can be applied to dance, are explored. This is an active class for all, dancers and non-dancers. Come prepared to move.
