MVMNT PHLOSPHY practice develops and nourishes our physical and mental adaptability and cultivates a calm, readiness for the unknown.


    Our training uses improvisation, floorwork, contemporary partnering, instinct/response methods and company phrase material to exercise the most efficient and alive versions of ourselves. Through acute specificity and focus we will find freedom and cultivate power inside our body. Our technique studies the use of momentum, weight, and successive articulation of our bodies into and out of the floor. We study transitions, unpacking the mechanics and body organizations necessary for seamless shifts of direction and intention. We exercise choice and free will, playfully practicing the law of causation, understanding that dance practice and life practice are one in the same.

How you do anything is how you do everything.
