Hello everyone,

I'm teaching a class series through freeskewl
<http://www.freeskewl.com/> called
Somatic Aesthetics. There are two more classes
<https://www.facebook.com/events/1142530002859319/> tomorrow and next
Tuesday at 12pm. We'll be playing with touch as seeing and seeing as touch,
and we'll create short dances for each other.

Pay what you can!

Class description: How can we use somatic practices to inspire our
artistry? How does our embodiment inform our compositional choices and
aesthetic values? In this lab-like environment, we'll discover when our
embodied impulses create spatial harmony or dissonance. We'll begin with a
solo embodied anatomy practice and then broaden our awareness into
site-specific choreography.
