Blending Kline Technique, Safety Release Technique, and release technique Katherine's class is an energetic exploration of movement from the inside out. Emphasis is placed on the initiation of the movement and the path the various body parts take in space to discover how one's own body moves within the movement. We embrace the space through phrases that move in and out of the floor and carry us in and out of balance. Class begins quietly and gradually builds in complexity, culminating in a dynamic phrase. Sleeves and knee-pads or long pants are recommended.
"Among the movement/dance techniques I have studied, release-based techniques - which appreciate and make space for the uniqueness of each mover's body, emphasize understanding initiations and pathways over emulating shapes, and are practiced through self reflection and self discovery - fit best with how I like to move and my values as a dancer artist, teacher, and person.
My approach to movement and teaching movement was most significantly formed through studying release-based technique with Jeremy Nelson and Luis Lara Malvacias, Kline Technique with Barbara Mahler, and Safety Release Technique with BJ Sullivan." -- Katherine
