WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: The practice of soft and gradual entrances to the floor, will lead us into soft meetings with our partners, as we gradually transfer/receive each other’s weight. Some other ideas will be explored via improvisation, and also through set material. We will learn some movement sequences made of individual dance parts and contact with a partner's parts.

All levels

The Axis Syllabus is a compendium or encyclopedia of information relevant to the training, preparation, and performance of the moving human body.  The Axis Syllabus refers to physics, anatomy, and relevant scientific data on flexibility, strength, alignment, injuries, and movement practices. Teachers of the Axis Syllabus use these references to inform movement choices to explore the what, where, and, how of efficiency and safe risk-taking, and common-sense applications of principles that apply to every-life activities as well, such as, climbing, horseback riding, construction work, sports, dance, running, etc. 

Those that want to be involved in the Axis Syllabus form an international community through the ASRM (The Axis Syllabus Research Meshwork) a dynamic and interactive forum of teachers, researchers, and students.
