*Engaging Sensation* weaves imagery, touch, improvisation and phrase work
together. I incorporate my study of Franklin Method into class prioritizing
how the movement feels alongside functional investigation. We can invite in
pleasure, softness, rigor, and sweat as we move. Exploring weight and
weightlessness, arrival and escape, balance and precariousness not as
binaries but rather feeling for how they exist simultaneously as we dance.
This practice affords us time to get lost magic of sensation.
