CREATIVE DANCE

ABOUT CREATIVE DANCE
A free approach to body movement as an art activity pioneered by Barbara Mettler, student of Mary Wigman in the early 1930's, Creative Dance awakens the kinesthetic sense, deepens the kinesthetic capacity for movement expression, and provides the fundamentals to experience the joy of movement for anyone interested. It is a language whose vocabulary is the interplay of the elements of dance, force, time, and space and whose expression is realized through individual, small and large group improvisation. The study and practice of creative dance supports a primary need for collective movement expression shared by us all.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Our day together will serve as an introduction to the art of body movement which comes out of the Mettler-based tradition.

The study of creative dance deepens our understanding of movement expression as a basic human need. It is open to anyone who wishes to further develop his/her capacity for movement expression and move creatively with others.

Expect to explore movement possibilities, be open to making discoveries as dances unfold, and to immerse yourself fully in this fun yet focused workshop. The study of creative dance is recommended for everyone... teachers, therapists, clergy, dancers, artists, musicians, or anyone who is interested in movement expression. Applications of the work are many and include the fields of education, counseling, recreation, all the arts, and life itself.
