Moving Empathetically Together: in dance

Donna shares practices that she has been developing over the years based on moving-in-relation while dancing inspired by Laban based theories, phenomenology, and post structural theory. These somatic-based classes focuses specifically on developing attunement skills, kinesthetic empathy, dancing the space between, and recognizing the moment of emergence. 

These classes (and workshops) are part labrotory-like in nature. Participants must be open to working together with others through witnessing, touch, and intuitive moving dialogues


Self reflection and reflecting as a group is woven into each class.  These classes move beyond dance, into a field of social togetherness. All explorations are guided within a safe and supportive environment. Each participant is encouraged to have full agency to follow their intuitive knowing as an inner compass.
