VIBRANT BODY is an open space for movement. The class is based on the premise that movement exists in all of us at all times, and is a celebration of this movement and the sensations we can receive from it. By understanding and experiencing the functionality of our body — its anatomy, layers and mobility — we can exist in a space between activating/directing our movement and giving in to its forces. This naturally creates sensations in our body which can stimulate the inevitable continuation of movement.
In this guided collective practice we work closely with the music and sound that accompanies the class, as well as other external influences that affect our movement.
In VIBRANT BODY we seek an internal and sensorial, rather than a visual experience of movement and dance. Therefore, the class is open to anyone interested in movement, regardless of experience in a dance class context.
This practice draws inspiration from Sidra Bell’s methodology, Gaga, Dose of Pleasure by Alvin Collantes, and our personal creative practices among others.
