Moving the body can be a joyful thing! Drawing inspiration from various dance forms and Capoeira, students will find new pathways in their bodies to create, express, and move through space. We will explore spiral movement pathways, responsive partnering dynamics, and elemental inspirations. The playful and dance-like elements of circular flow and improvisation that are central to Capoeira can guide us towards greater freedom in our embodied expression.
