In Relation: Dancing as a Living System

With Laura June Albert and Loretta Laurin

May 10 - 15, 2020

Laura is an amazing teacher who has made a profound impact on my life. I have learnt an incredible deal about myself, my body, movement, creativity, and being in the world. I also greatly appreciate the fact that she brings the social justice perspective into her teaching. It has been a truly transformative experience working with her.  -A. Gaisenok, Past Participant

Experience your body as a living system in relation to nature and our wider social-political landscape. Explore embodiment practices, dance technique, and movement research to expand your range and capacity for interconnection. Elements include western contemporary dance, solo and contact improvisation, anatomy, and nature immersion.

With Loretta, every class is a new journey. Wherever I am, she provides the grounds for me to work on what I need. I gain insight into my body in each class, but more importantly, I’ve gotten the answers to some of my toughest life questions while moving with her! –A. Bozorgzadeh, Past Participant
