So We Know We Can Dance™, a Feldenkrais® guided dance experience.
All levels & abilities are welcome to move gently and get to know your inner dance!
"When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It is to enjoy each step along the way"
So, how come we know we can dance?
“Dance has certainly been an important part of ceremony, rituals, celebration and entertainment since before the birth of the earliest human civilizations. Archaeology delivers traces of dance from prehistoric times such as the 9,000-year-old Bhimbetka rock shelters paintings in India and Egyptian tomb paintings depicting dancing figures from c.3300 BC.”
Clearly, we have always danced. Across cultures humans appear to have danced using human body language movements to express themselves as long as we know.
Research has shown that 80% of communication is nonverbal. Before we started talking as a species and as infants we relied on body movements and actions to communicate our thoughts and emotions. Think about a baby who wiggles when excited.
Similarly, dance is a form of nonverbal communication. The movements become a dance when the actions are done to a certain rhythm. We still enjoy the kinesthetic pleasure and depth of this nonverbal communication. It is in our bodies. We can find our unique human movement possibilities in ourselves and dance our own way. In So we know we can dance I aim to pass on what I have learned so that you can enjoy your own dance.
