Kids creative movement class with Deanna Carlson for 5-9 year olds

Child with an Intuitive Knack for Movement? Creative Movement classes offer an environment for children to express their independent nature by encouraging imagination through movement! Class is structured around improvisation exercises and games which we play to relate movement to time, space, rhythm, and energy. Group activities help us promote social-behavioral health, while cultivating a safe learning environment to promote positive sense of self and others. We will cover basic dance training to support body awareness and safety.

Authentic Movement Practice with Tahni Holt + Hannah Krafcik

NOTE: NO CLASS JULY 1st!

Authentic Movement is a simple form of self-directed movement. It is usually done with eyes closed and attention directed inward, in the presence of at least one witness. Movers explore spontaneous gestures, movements, and stillness, following inner impulses in the present moment. The witness watches and tracks inner responses to the mover with the intention of not judging, but focusing on self-awareness.

Authentic Movement cultivates a contemplative frame of mind, clarity of perception, and movement that is personally enhancing. The particular relationship between mover and witness, in moving and being seen by another, creates a powerful framework within which this work takes place.
