About this class:

The Topf Technique/Dynamic Anatomy® provides pathways into deeper perception, heightened awareness and expanded movement possibilities for dancers and movers of all genres and abilities. Also known as 'Experiential Anatomy', the Topf Technique/Dynamic Anatomy® guides students to explore physical expression and creativity while finding new relationships with both inner and outer space. Using visuals, touch, breath, specific sequences and improvisation to trigger imagination, the class helps students reimagine 'the body' and uncover new pathways to movement that is highly personal, deeply grounded, centered and refined. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to understand the anatomy underlying their primary dance or other movement techniques, gain a deeper understanding of their own movement preferences, work through pain/stiffness/injury, or expand their options for generating choreography and building their unique movement vocabulary.

Movement Research Zoom Etiquette:

Since many of us are new to taking class on Zoom, MR has compiled some etiquette guidelines to ensure that everyone’s time in class is full and respected.

  1. We ask that you "mute" yourself at all times, unless Faculty has asked you to verbally participate.
  2. If you’re dropping in to see how this class might suit you, please keep your video off. Send a message to just your instructor ("Chat" > "Chat with Host") so that they know that this is what you’re doing. It can be disorienting for both your instructor and fellow participants to see a video that is turned off, or one in which someone is inattentive.
  3. Have a question or concern? Use the chat function to communicate with the class and/or teacher.

Thank you! We hope you enjoy class!
