We will use Skinner Releasing Technique ™ (SRT) to enhance our Contact Improvisation and apply it to set structures (harnessing) for improvisation or compositional creation. SRT is a dance training methodology combining technique with creative process, which is greatly influencing today’s dancing aesthetics. By cultivating effortlessness, one begins letting go of unnecessary holding in the physical self, gaining flexibility, efficiency, freedom. Through guided imagery, music and hands-on partner studies the practice facilitates a deep kinesthetic experience of movement and in time a shedding of outer layers. It is an experiential, intuitive approach that utilizes imagery as a powerful tool for transformation. Wear comfortable clothing in layers. Bring paper and writing instrument.

The dance resonates within us and carries us along on its journey. We allow ourselves to be danced…
