English Version:
This is a movement class for ALL performers, from ALL DISCIPLINES -- though NON-PERFORMERS are WARMLY welcome! We reclaim the body's strength, depth, articulation and mobility while developing its range of (e)motion, expression and physical possibility. The class is an exploration in which we embody our being, claim our presence, meet, experiment and discover together.

We start by integrating the attention, breath and movement to clear out and release blockages, increase flexibility and claim our presence and being. We work with the body's weight, with gravity and space, to develop awareness, strength and ease. We move out into space around us to meet and connect with each other, developing not only the animal grace inherent in each of us, but also the ability to "listen," respond and "speak" through the body. As the course progresses, there will be an opportunity to work on individual and group scenes -- from a body perspective -- for those interested. The work draws from not only dance and theatre, but also very much from yoga, the martial and energy arts.

It is lots of fun, and open to all levels. Drop-ins are accepted and class cards are available. For more information, contact Ann Moradian, perspectivesinmotion(at)

version française:

Le Jeu du Corps / Playing the Body
est un cours pleinement porté sur l'intégrité, la présence, l'articulation et les relations. Nous commençons avec une pratique yogique, intégrant attention et respiration aux mouvements du corps, pour soulager les blocages et accroître notre mobilité. Nous travaillons avec l'espace et la gravité, pour développer conscience, force et souplesse. Puis nous évoluons vers notre environnement pour bouger en contact avec les autres, développant non seulement la grâce animale intrinsèque à chacun de nous, mais aussi notre capacité à “écouter”, répondre et “parler” à travers le corps. Incorporant des éléments du yoga comme des arts martiaux, ce cours est conçu pour les artistes de spectacle vivant et est ouvert à tous les niveaux. On y prend beaucoup de plaisir, chacun est le bienvenu ! Cours à l'unité acceptés et cartes de cours applicables. Pour plus d'informations contact Ann Moradian,
