This course is designed for students interested in self-growth and/or performance: to heighten students’ awareness and understanding of their own bodies and movement habits and the process and importance of non-verbal communication. Corrective work in basic movement mechanics leads to increased flexibility and fitness, better alignment and less stress in performing everyday movements, and to a more relaxed, confident presence on stage. Tools of movement analysis and terminology are presented. Improvisation frees inhibitions, challenges the imagination, and develops students’ abilities to work well within a group. This course satisfies the Core Exploration requirement in Arts.
