This class is for bodies that want to experience juicy powerful movement.
Beginning on the ground, we deepen into our own weightedness, restore
connection through breath, and organize the body with an integrated
awareness of both efficiency and strength, punctuation and seamlessness.
The class culminates in movement phrases that harness momentum, retain
connection to the floor, and cultivate both supple expressiveness and
fierce attack.


*Mondays (starting January 9th) 6-8 PM*

*The Iron Factory <http://www.theironfactory.org/classes> (118 Fontain
Street, 3rd flr)*

*$10, drop ins welcome*


Tevyn East graduated from Hollins University in ’01 with a degree in dance,
then launched into full time community building creative processes. She
spent a decade working with the Zen Monkey Project in Charlottesville, VA,
collaboratively building original evening-length works of dance theater,
teaching regularly and produced various cultural events. In ’05, she
directed The Palimpsest, an intimate performance among sculpted
installation pieces. She helped produce the Charlottesville WunderKammer
and Shen Tai, two arts carnivals full of roving sideshows and interactive
installations. Tevyn has also worked with artists on the West Coast,
improvising and performing with Karl Frost’s Body Research Project,
appearing as a guest artist with the Movement Alliance, and performing with
the Glass Bead Players in Nevada City, CA. More recently, Tevyn produced
and performed a one-woman show, entitled Leaps and Bounds, which she has
toured and presented to over 150 communities around the country. Within her
tour schedule, she guest taught in a number of community centers and
college dance classes. This production has now been made into a feature
length film that you can learn about at www.holyfoolarts.org. Presently,
she is the Director of the Carnival de Resistance
<http://carnivalderesistance.com/>, a traveling arts carnival,
unconventional school, and lifestyle experiment that seeks to integrate
art, activism, and spirituality that is responsive to the needs of the
world and the signs of the times.
