Technique

The classes are influenced by Nelson’s 30 years of continuing study in the work of Barbara Mahler and Susan Klein, and by more recent studies in Alexander Technique, Body-Mind Centering® and the Feldenkrais Method®. We will begin with simple exercises and stretches that encourage mobility in the superficial muscles, establish clear connections and directions through the bones, and create a dynamic and weighted relationship with the floor. We will take this information and apply it to phrases of movement that involve moving boldly, covering lots of space, taking chances off-balance and finding awareness and ease in our dancing.
