Dear dance community, 

I'm happy to announce this special practice with Jeanine During coming up on
July 6th and 7th. For the longest time I tried to figure out how to produce
this live, but alas. it has to be virtual. 

The greatest thing about it is that it is open to all dance modalities
(including percussive dance), as the work will really happed within you in
the privacy of your home.  As long as you have an improvisational aspect of
your movement practice, this workshop is for you. 

If you have any questions, please respond to this email. 

>From Jeanine:

the revolution inside

based on a practice i call nonstopping, i'll offer some non-theoretical
strategies for getting closer to the mind that moves the body/ies that you
move through. this is a lab for personal process and action toward the fluid
consideration of choreographic thinking. through sometimes languaging, and
possibly writing, but mostly moving, we'll tune to the complexities of our
unfolding ecologies, sharpen our responsiveness to the multiplicities of our
emergent materials, and empower ourselves to the probable poetics of our
micro choices.

***All Virtual events will be held on Zoom. 
***This is a professional level practice. Previous experience in
improvisation and/or improvisational dance making is a must. Open to all
dance genres! If you have questions, please email Zornitsa at
