Mar 30: The Power of the Pelvis Workshop

Saturday, March 30, 2013
Workshop: 1:00-4:00pm
Location: Boulder Circus Center (4747 26th St, Boulder CO)
Taught by Alicia Grayson and J. Akiyama

In this Contact Improvisation workshop we will focus on the tremendous power the pelvis gives us in our dancing.

Specifically you will:
  • develop the ability to be light and fluid as you move in and out of contact and sharing weight
  • refine your ability to connect your limbs to core so your body moves with elegant integration
  • increase mobility and responsiveness in the hips and spine for more easeful connection to your partner as you move in three dimensional pace.
  • discover how accurate placement and mobility of the pelvis creates effortless in supporting and receiving lifts
This workshop is open to dancers with any level of contact improvisation skills.

Cost: $35 if paid before March 16, $40 after March 16.
