Movement Fundamentals: Liberating Practices for the Dance Artist

Movement Fundamentals consists of six paired principles:

  • alignment and function
  • range and efficiency
  • vocabulary and intention

The program unites these principles through ongoing and everyday practice:

  • trains body (not style)
  • teaches principles (not steps)
  • applies to life (not just the dance studio)
  • liberates the student into self-knowledge (no mirrors or mimicry)
  • empowers dance artistry (know who you are; follow what you want)
  • respects the body as an articulate and intelligent instrument (give yourself agency)
  • integrates body, mind and spirit (practice your embodiment)
  • seeks (w)holistic interdependence (your creative and sustainable living practice)
