Dancing from the Inside Out
With Margie Gillis
July 7 - 12, 2024
Move into your body’s experiential wisdom and reveal the soul in motion. Develop your sensitivity to the connection between thought, feeling, spirit and body as you listen in to your body’s inner wisdom, impulses, conversations and emotions. Becoming sensitive to and engaging with this inner life provides information both for expanding well-being, as well as deepening your artistic and creative expression.
“Margie is a master teacher, dropping wise advice constantly and encouraging awakening of the body… Open [and] inclusive of everyone and respect for where you are in the moment.” – past participant
Re-awaken the joy of movement using dance exercises, games, imagery and guided movement motifs. Open your soul’s connection to the body and invite it out to breathe and play, to stretch, learn and grow, to articulate the most nuanced of emotions.
All levels are welcome as the program is tailored to the participants in the room. Beginners gain a better understanding of the body. More experienced acquire a greater knowledge of their own special ways of moving while enhancing the quality of their performance level.
“Nothing comes near to Margie’s metamorphically-based dance for overall physical and emotional dance work. I love the respectful connection with participants with a broad range of experiences.” – past participant
