Modern Dance for the Soma


Taught by Martinell and invited guests, workshops emphasize a somatic approach to intermediate-level modern dance technique, layering self-awareness with dynamic movement choices and personal artistry. Each workshop highlights and builds upon a particular theme, such as spirals, sequencing, exertion/recuperation, phrasing, and weight sharing. Students enjoy discovering their soma, taking risks, exploring the body’s capabilities, and integrating concepts into daily life all within a supportive environment. Photo by Michael R. Faulkner.
