SubtleBodyBigDance - Contemporary Dance Technique
When: Thursdays, 5:30-7 pm
Where: San Diego Dance Theater's studio 106 at Dance Place, 2650 Truxton Rd, San Diego, CA 92106

Description: "SubtleBodyBigDance" presents a unique approach to contemporary dance technique that seamlessly weaves imagery-based improvisational research with choreographed phrase material. Influenced by nine months of intensive research in the Gaga movement language in Israel, as well as decades of work in numerous dance idioms and somatic modalities, Gina Bolles Sorensen and Kyle Sorensen of somebodies dance theater gradually warm the body and then challenge dancers to explore a rich and multi-textured tapestry of dynamic physicality. As imagery and the practice of observing sensation are woven into movement, dancers may discover a new and freeing availability in their bodies, as well as an invigorated sense of presence, play, and groove.

Practicing yoga in a space in which you feel comfortable and relaxed provides rich opportunities to connect mind and body for personal growth. It is dedicated time to cultivate virtues such as initiative, determination, and self-reflection, and it marks your commitment to prioritize quiet time and self-care. An online practice is an open and flexible alternative to studios with set schedules and crowded spaces. And it travels with you.
