The Art of Improvisation – June 2 Ecstatic Dance Session

June 2, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

| $20

Explore Ecstatic Dance Session – Thurs. June 2 from 6:30-7:30 pm

THEME: The Art of Improvisation: tuning in, uncovering patterns, and expanding the potential of movement in the moment

Facilitated by Twyla Kowalenko

Whether you’ve been practicing ecstatic dance for years or don’t even know what the term means, this session is open to YOU!

In this all-level workshop, we will be exploring movement improvisation by practicing tuning into the moment and our bodies and following impulses internally and externally. We will explore our own movement patterns and tendencies as well as expand our potential range of motion by playing with movement qualities and space. The Laban-inspired workshop will offer everyone more entry points into the practice of conscious dance.

Twyla Kowalenko has been facilitating improvisation-based dance in Toronto for the past 7 years and, as a social worker, has been facilitating groups for almost 2 decades. She is a facilitator and organiser of The Move Dance Collective and is a doctoral candidate at York University, where she is exploring barriers to dance and embodied knowing.

$20 (includes admission to ecstatic dance from 7:30-9:30 pm)
