Workshop Description: Body-mind Belly Dance: Enhance your practice, improvisation and choreography.  Basic technique in Belly dance is suggested but not required. This workshop is for dancers who are curious about deepening their connection to their dance through the experience of their bodies. Body-Mind Centering offers an “in” to understanding  the “minds” of the body systems and their roles in our expression and movement.  Combine BMC with Belly dance, rest into your body’s expression, and find new tools for your dance practice. Please wear clothes comfortable for movement both on the ground and standing.

What systems will we explore?

Organs:  For sensing weight, fluidity, fullness of presence and support for movement.

Bones: The directionality and structure of the skeletal system supports dynamic use of space and movement.  

Endocrine system: The endocrine system is indicated in emotional experience and expression. Does it drive or support expression? Touching into the glands of the endocrine system can support the range of feeling in your dance.

with Andrea Bullard & Rachel Prairie

Bio: Andrea believes that dancing can be many things:  a way to escape, a way to express, to be aware and to arrive.  Embodiment has been her lifelong study and path. Andrea received her MA in Somatic Psychotherapy with a Dance Therapy focus from Naropa University. Her background in dance ranges from Ballet to contemporary and of course Belly dance. Andrea is currently a Somanaut with The Brook Institute and Bodymind Somanautics. Andrea is an intern with the Brook institute, exploring pre and perinatal experience with clients and supporting body-mind integration and greater potency in life.
