SECOND SUNDAY DANCE JAM
Fluid Body - Contact Improvisation with Mary Jo Fulmer
In partners, groups and in deep individual attention to our own body and breath, we will explore ways of engaging our body's wisdom, aliveness and playfulness. We will tap into somatic possibilities for releasing, connecting, grounding, lightening up, finding spirals, and interacting with self, the environment, and others.
This work is a delightful way to remember to exist fully in the present moment, open to what is arising, responsive to impulses from within and without. With this enhanced presence and flexibility of mind and body, we build our ability to perceive and to respond creatively and organically to whatever life brings us. This work is relaxing, energizing, fun and offers tremendous resources for growth, awareness and vitality.
Mary Jo Fulmer has been teaching movement for over 4 decades. She has studied dance, Contact Improvisation, Continuum, shamanism, and various styles of releasing work from extraordinary teachers throughout North America and has taught and performed in Japan, Singapore, Africa, San Francisco and in many places in Canada. She believes that our bodies are sources of wisdom and that creative self-expression is essential to our well-being. Her teaching marries depth of somatic and psychological wisdom with a sensitive and engaging teaching style.
"Everyone in the class felt empowered and supported no matter what their movement background was...Mary Jo has that true gift found in sensitive and seasoned teachers." ~Marlise McCormick, choreographer, Cirque de Soleil
