Adult Workshops
Slipstream Bungee Sundays with Sonya Smith  
Sundays 12:00-2:30pm March 19th, 26th, and April 2nd 

This 3-week workshop for women and gender non-conforming folk embraces the power and possibility in the body alone and in contact with objects, spaces and people. 

These 2.5 hour classes focus on bungee and as we get comfortable, bungee partnering. We begin with a Contact Improvisation based warm-up to prepare for partnering in the air. This will also be our opportunity to engage in discussion around strength, fluidity, awkwardness, aerial movement aesthetics and expectations around the body you inhabit.

Bartenieff Fundamentals with Peggy Hackney
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, April 6-8 
Cost: $225

This class works with Patterns of Total Body Connectivity (related to a developmental progression) that facilitate the lively interplay of connective kinetic chains inside the body with expression into the outer world. Basic issues of efficiency and coordination are dealt with in relation to Breath and Core Support, clarity of proximal joint articulation (including gradated rotation), weight shift, propulsion and level change, and full three-dimensional movement. Students are encouraged to locate the sensations and feelings that are brought up by the movement, and form these in some way that is personally meaningful. (This course meets the LMA Certification Program pre-requisite.) Required for CMTSE.

Alexander Technique with Carol Swann
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, April 6 -8
Cost: $225

The Alexander Technique is an educational method of body-mind reorganization that aims to promote ease in everything we do. By freeing ourselves from unconscious physical habits, we can create effortlessness in the way we live and move. Applications to voice, movement, walking, sitting, and talking will be addressed.
