Writing about my movement experiences here will support and inform of work we are committed to, join in the conversation.
“Dance is the hidden language of the soul” Martha Graham.
So, if dance is the hidden language then through non-verbal communication we are having the most intricate conversations constantly without talking. I love to move and I love to support and guide others to find their movement pathways, finding an inner light of confidence in their own bodies. To express, in a way that may be impossible through a voice, their inner most feelings and desires.
I call my practise ‘authored’, I call myself a choreographer, although I almost just shape the bodies in time and space, the choreographers are yourselves. Journeying through reach and breath to find the solution and a way to speak. All I try and do is find a place so you can voice YOUR language, so it is not hidden, so that anyone can understand you.
I would like to make dance not a hidden language but simply a language that is always spoken, being conscious of what you say, is not enough. The health benefits of dance out way other forms of movement. Why? because it is an art, a practise that, reduces stress, extends muscles and ligaments, strengthens the core and is also highly creative. Solution finding, physically inquisitive, problem solving, discussing work, confidence building.
