This workshop is an introduction to Group Dance Improvisation pioneered by Barbara Mettler (https://barbaramettler.org).
Movement themes will celebrate the natural, authentic dancer within each person and serve to encourage a fully inclusive and participatory creative environment. Emphasis will be placed on developing and understanding the “Group Body,” as defined by Barbara Mettler: “Dance is essentially a group activity and an individual dancer can find creative fulfillment as a member of a creatively dancing group”.
This workshop is taught by Karenne Koo. She is a dance artist committed to developing and practicing multi-disciplinary approaches to encourage and stimulate the art of inclusive dance as an instrument for building community. Karenne is thrilled to have this opportunity to dance with Body Shift and friends. (dancesequences.org, karennekoo.net)
