Consious Technique Dance Workshop

"Do or do not, there is no try." - Yoda (Star Wars)
So I dared to risk going to Conscious Technique with Meshi Chavez~~~~~~~~~~~~

butoh ~ improv ~ choreography ~ consciousness ~ form ~ dance

"Conscious Technique provides a fusion of organic movement and choreographed moments. Participants will hone in on the use of imagination to foster presence in their movement practice while sharpening performance skills. Each session is an exploration of the internal power potential we possess as mover and artists. Through sustained concentration we will engage our external surroundings while connecting it to our internal process and vice versa."
I did not let the fear of the unknown stand in my way and I dared to dance outside my comfort zone. Still suffering with headaches I pushed through it. If I am in pain I can still do something that fills my soul. I tried to dance through the pain. I am so glad I did. I carried the intent and awareness of "inside body" "outside body" and "social or collective body" with me as I left the class. I am excited to see how this all plays out in my "real world life?" I look forward to the next three sessions.
