Class focuses on opening up curiosity, finding internal pathways within the body and the contrast of those same pathways. An assortment of texture, speed, density, length, force and resistance will be taught to open these skills. The Moving Practice class will differ from Mathew’s regular Contemporary Flow class by investigating, through improvisation, one’s body in space – inviting stillness, invisibility, and listening to your weight falling through space.
