Authentic Movement with Kay Mann.
Authentic Movement is an improvisational movement form, also known as Contemplative Dance, Tao of the Body and Essential Movement, pioneered by Mary Whitehouse in the 1970s. It requires no prior dance training, but rather a desire and willingness to explore the body?s natural impulse to move and to allow itself to be moved by the spirit. Through paying attention without judgment to what is present in our movement and the sounds, images, ideas and memories that accompany it, we call forth what is most essential. Each session will begin with a warm-up period to enliven consciousness in the physical body using Gabrielle Roth?s 5 rhythms, (aka The Wave). The opportunity for artistic expression through visual or written media follows the movement period. Reflection on one?s experience afterward serves to ground and amplify the discoveries made.SESSIONS ARE ONGOING and will be held on first and third Saturday mornings each month from 10:00-1:00 at the Bath Dance Works, 72 Front Street, third floor, in Bath. Participants may begin at any time. Requested donation of $10.00 per session. Please call Kay Mann at 725-9997 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
