Event Description

TOGETHER MOVING

FRIDAYS 11:30-1PM | THE ROOTED SPACE | SLIDING SCALE $5-15

Together Moving is a weekly class to rediscover our dancing selves as we rediscover moving together. Led by Gina Hoch-Stall with a responsive mixture of hands-on anatomical exploration, movement sequences designed for maximal experimentation, communal discourse, and thick, complex phrase-work, we skill-build, strength-train and move, move, move. It is sweaty and somatic and radically anti-hierarchical with a specific emphasis on floorwork and inversions. We watch each other move, play with our ideas about moving, and discover the overlap between what we're striving for and we have to offer one another.  We practice not hating ourselves for being a flawed and mortal humans and celebrating one another's abilities with full-throttled support because there is enough good dancing to go around.
