Moving Art with Barbara Selinger of DDC Dance, featuring art by Nancy Coumoundouros
June 23rd, 7:00 – 8:00 pm
You will discover and explore movement inspired by the visual arts! Together, the class will view images of artwork that will serve to motivate individual creative responses. The class will begin with a gentle warm-up that encourages all to experience an organic sense of wholeness through the use of breath. Collectively, we will participate in guided exercises and prompts that empower each of us to find ways of expressing our thoughts and feelings. “Moving Art” will embrace the elements of the human condition with respect, love and compassion.
We’ll be creating dances about OWLS! This is an opportunity to “explore their personalities, attitudes, sweetness, and at times, their humor.” Nancy’s exquisite paintings may inspire a unique verbal/movement dialogue between you and these extraordinary creatures. “Owls seem to inspire a wide range of emotions, in so many people.”
This class is conducted via Zoom and costs $5. Register here.
