Arms in Relation

In each 90-minute Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement (ATM) class, students will be verbally guided through a specific sequence of slow, gentle movements designed to illuminate aspects of movement and sensory awareness chosen specifically for their relevance to dancers. This series will feature four ATM lessons that will each explore the use of self in relation to one or more orientations of the arms (e.g., arms extended overhead, forwards, sideways, etc.). There will be an opportunity at the end of each lesson to explore these relationships in various orientations other than lying down on the floor. Each ATM seeks to provide a setting in which students may work at their own pace and be led by their own curiosity to rediscover and enhance their innate human capacity for graceful, effortless movement.
