UNIQUE FEATURES OF THIS WORKSHOP

Body Mapping

Body Mapping is not technique, it is the basis for technique. The Body Map is our self-representation in our own brain. If the Body Map is accurate, movement is good. If the Body Map is inaccurate, movement is inefficient and can produce injury. The workshop is designed to help each person develop an accurate Body Map and to give teachers and conductors tools to work with their students. Performers will find techniques to make their movements more efficient.
