….The Art and Science of Movement Education
In late March, I’ll be heading for England and Ireland to study and work for an extended period. Dance and Somatics are thriving in Ireland. I’m happy to announce that throughout May, I will be teaching Alexander Technique in Motion, at the Dublin DanceHouse.
Also, coming up soon! The 2nd international meeting of Alexander Technique teachers in Dublin, Ireland!! It’s a get-together where everyone learns and is appreciated for their contribution to the work.
I just finished drafting an article for the new International Journal of Prenatal and Life Sciences, the journal for the institute of prenatal and life sciences called Cosmoanelixis in Greece. Cosmoanelixis brings phenomenology and Goethean science (anthroposophy) into the study of prenatal life. The article – Human Origami: A trans-disciplinary approach to embodiment and embryonic life — draws from my work in dance and Somatics and will weave in science and phenomenology, as well. I’m thrilled at the prospect! And…I’m working on a new Human Origami website to showcase my practice-based research in somatic movement and fractal consciousness – stay tuned!

My talk, Who’s afraid of dance – or science?, addressed how dance promotes agency – a concept that bridges across many disciplines, both theoretical and practical.
