Sessions start with an opportunity for somatic self-connection / exploration which may be influenced by Skinner Releasing Technique, The Franklin Method, The Lucid Body Method, The Feldenkrais Method, Hanna Somatics & Yoga. Our warm-up will continue to evolve from floor to standing, with traditional technique exercises, travelling phrases & dynamic sequences influenced by Cunningham, Humphrey & Release Technique.
Choreography will include rooting, gravity & grounding as a foundation for relating to and expanding out into the environment. Sequences delivered will provide opportunity for the interoceptive depth that serves to orient us in our primal, natural instinct for expressive, embodied, authenticity as we move through the material. With awareness alive we will move, feel, sense, breath, extend, retract, expand, contract, suspend, fall, root, rise, roll, release & spiral through space. Come and dance to feel alive, enriched, elevated, centred, embodied, empowered, present, connected & liberated.

Emma continues to explore Somatic Dance at The Siobhan Davies Dance Studio and to expand my understanding of movement as a psycho-somatic, therapeutic tool.
