Diana Lara (Deepening Class)
Class Description: "Inner/outer spirals"
In this class, we will use elements of Body Mind Centering to create awareness of the map of spinal nerves distribution in the connective tissue and skin (dermatomas). This awareness could assist to perceive the tri-dimensionality of the arms and legs, and its potential for creating spiral forms and flow in contact dance.
