The Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT) is an inclusive dance technique designed for professional dancers, actors and musicians as well as for people with little or no formal dance training. It is a practice for all those with an interest in engaging in the dynamic dialogue between imagination and movement. Guided poetic imagery, music and hands-on partner studies facilitate deep kinaesthetic experience of movement. The practice stimulates the process of letting go of one’s tension and holding patterns releasing new possibilities in how we perceive and how we dance.

SRT’s founding principals are based in the Alexander Technique and then applied to the dancer. Joan Skinner is the dance pioneer who began introducing concepts of Release into her teaching: resulting in an influential and alternative way of studying dance which has now influenced all contemporary dance practices as we know them today.|The Introductory Level is a series of 15 classes.

What’s contact danse?

An invitation to let go in a haven of peace. Dancing, experience the laws of gravity, momentum and balance, that is the contact improvisation.
