*About the Series:*

February 18
Reflexes and the Senses

March 18
Reflexes and the Spatial Planes

April 22
Reflexes and Contact Improvisation

The reflexes (over 300 of them!) are automatic responses to sensory
stimulation that arise and integrate throughout the early months and years
of our lives. They enable us to relate to gravity, space and others.
Embedded in the reflexes is important information about why we move as we
do, and opportunities to broaden our potential for different kinds of
responses to situations, whether it's physics or human relationships.

Through practicing the reflexes, we remember the alphabet of our movement,
uncover potential causes for longstanding pain and learn more beautiful
ways to fall. In these classes we will learn a few of the reflex patterns
and practice them through hands-on exploration and dancing together.
