What is Sliding Scale? Sliding Scale is an economic justice strategy in which attendees are invited to evaluate their finances and pay what they can afford. Movement Research has historically kept class costs accessible at a $14 rate. The current value for dance/movement classes in NYC is between $17-$25 per hour. Please, make a conscious assessment of your finances and contribute what you can. We highly suggest you support our programming by paying the full price of $25 if this is possible for you.

No class on January 17, 2021

Class Description:

In these sessions, we will allow for spontaneous movement, stillness, and imagination to take precedence. Using poetic imagery, different sound environments, and our own writings, we can cultivate a heightened awareness of our integrated internal and external landscapes, bringing us into the present moment in new and unanticipated ways. We will experiment with our multi-layered practice stepping into a virtual sharing of our dancing, supporting one another in the virtual realm, allowing for moments of letting go and tuning into subtle perception. Please have a clothing layer and a notebook and writing utensil.
