Modern Dance Webinar Series
Discover your body's innate ability to move with physiotherapist and dancer, Shelly Yu, and Continuum dancer, Denise Mullen. We invite you to join this 4-week modern dance series, exploring dance as a form of mindful movement.
Shelly and Denise will guide you through the somatic approach in dance, a technique of drawing attention to the body's physical sensations and responding through movement. This form of dance emphasizes the feeling behind bodily movement. This class will focus on strengthening the mind-body connection to create movements through thoughts, emotions, and memories.
Each week will emphasize a different approach to modern dance:
- Week 1: Mind-Body Connection
- Week 2: Building on the Small Dance
- Week 3: Dancing through Gravity and Sensation
- Week 4: Improvisation
No experience with dance is necessary. People with Parkinson's and carepartners are all welcome to join, regardless of physical ability.
