Experiential awareness, body mapping, improvisation, and creative work are included as dancers channel their own expressive artistry within the movement.

Modern Dance Class with Thern at Tapestry

Dancing and finding pleasure in movement is for everyone of any age!

I’ve taught dance for all ages and experience levels for over fifty years. In my weekly session of modern dance classes, we’ll be working with somatic movement, structured improvisation, and floor work to build strength, flexibility, and ease of movement. You’ll learn patterns that move through space in community with other dancers, encouraging spatial and group awareness.

Mondays, 12:00-1:30pm
Drop in: $15-20. Cash or check made out to Kathryn Anderson.

Free parking in the lot south of Tapestry.

The Arena – Drop-in Moving Practice with Eva Mohn

Moving Practice is a weekly class series with rotating instructors every month. Classes prioritize rigor, diversity of contemporary aesthetics, variety of class content, and commitment.

Eva Mohn teaches Moving Practice in December
Tuesdays, 9:30-11:00am
Leslie O’Neill will sub December 26.

Professional-level dancers of all styles are welcome.
Pre-registration and payment beforehand encouraged.
Suggested price of $17 per class. Pay-as-able option on all classes – we would rather you join us than not be able to attend due to financial limitations.

Eva’s class will include a warm-up based on archetypal movement patterns as defined by the Masgadova Method of occupational therapy. The later portion of the morning training will include explorations of dance as a practice of music and play. In this class, we will use patterns, homolateral and cross-lateral, with ranges of complexity in coordination and balance. This progression is intended to be therapeutic for an overstimulated nervous system, as well as stimulating and invigoration for those of us who enjoy playful rigger on a chilly morning. All are welcome.

Eva Mohn works as a dancer and composer, straddling the USA and Europe. Eva originally comes from Minneapolis, MN. She was a member of the Minneapolis-based dance company TU Dance from 2002-2009. She moved to New York in 2009 to work with German choreographer Johannes Wieland. She then moved to Kassel, Germany to continue that working relationship with Wieland. In 2012 she moved to Stockholm, Sweden, and began working with Cullberg Ballet. She has a continuing relationship with Sweden and Cullberg however is now based in Minneapolis. In 2021 she received her Masters in Choreography and New Performative Practices from Stockholm University for the Arts. In the fall of 2022, she worked as an assistant on a project with Tilman O’Donnel in Stockholm with a premier in March 2023. She is currently working on a dance research performance project with Morgan Thorson for a premiere at the Great Northern Festival in winter 2024.

Eva is a student and practitioner of Cranial Sacral Therapy and has completed a study and certification in Yoga with Richard Freeman in Boulder, Colorado. She has spent chapters of her working life as a baker and house painter, and during the 2020 pandemic she worked as a farm manager for a small-scale organic sheep farm in Bloomington, Minnesota. In January 2021 she became a mother. Her current artistic practice is one of interplay and conflation between dancing, mothering, caregiving, inter-species relationships, and the physical inquiries of dancing, recreating, and playing.
