Intro to Axis Syllabus for Dancers and Movers
taught by Daniel Bear Davis
The Axis Syllabus offers a groundswell of relevant and specific information into healthy movement habits for moving humans living in a dynamic world. In this dance workshop, we will look at details of our own anatomy, refined over thousands of years of evolution, to gain clues about how to move in collaboration with our own fascinating design. Through specific inquiry, observation, and practice, we seek to increase our kinetic capacities while reducing the risk of injury and repetitive strain. Through a combination of choreographed motifs and focused improvisations, we will build tools for dynamic alignment, resilience, and informed choice.
Classes are open to all levels. There will be a range of adaptations to proposed movement motifs so learning can be supported for beginners and seasoned dancers simultaneously. Collaboration with the underlying patterns of our design will benefit anyone who lives in a body.
