DESCRIPTION:
Dance Class series with the certified teacher of the Axis Syllabus, Kathleen Rea. Information from the Axis Syllabus will be used to explore dance exercises. Dance movements are practiced that aim to be energy-conservative, use kinetic chains, load and spend kinetic force through our body system, and recycle kinetic force. Kathleen will refer to physics, anatomy, and relevant scientific data from various fields seen through the lens of the Axis Syllabus.

WHAT IS THE AXIS SYLLABUS? The Axis Syllabus is a compendium 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, and injuries. Teachers of the Axis Syllabus use these information references to inform their own movement choices and practices and to explore the what, where, and, how of efficiency and safe risk-taking.  Common-sense applications can be explored that apply information from the Axis Syllabus to all of life's activities as well as specific practices such as climbing, horseback riding, construction work, sports, dance, running, etc. Those who 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. 

ALL LEVELS: Those with disabilities are welcome and accommodations are offered. Let’s talk about what you may need to attend.

REAson d'etre dance productions

http://www.reasondetre.com/

REAson d'etre dance stages and programs events (Dance-theatre, workshops, Film Festivals based on Contact Improvisation and functional movement so we can utilize the inclusiveness that can be a part of these movement forms. Our vision is for both professional dancers and everyday people to be inspired and invigorated by Contact Improvisation and functional movement. REAson d'etre dance strives to provide artistic expression through movement, inclusive of age, ability, level or background. We say that we strive because due to lack of resources, the iniquities of society, and competing access needs inevitably access will be affected despite our attempts to make things as accessible as possible.
