Moving's View: EVOLUTIONARY 2018

 with Susan Schell, Karen Nelson, and Nancy Stark Smith

Programming category: 
May 20, 2018 - May 27, 2018

A week-long workshop 

Tracing the living evolution of forms in and through our own bodies, this workshop dives into and weaves together Contact Improvisation, Authentic Movement, the Underscore, Tuning Scores, meditation, and other current passions in the 9th occurrence of this intensive at Earthdance since 1998. Each body-mind is a map of evolutionary territory no matter where we are on the spectrum of experience. How does a sense of contributing to developing forms live in each of us?

We bring together a 38-year history shared amongst Moving's View facilitators, the space of Earthdance, and an evolutionary intimacy with the forms we continue to grow and share.

Moving's View is open to dancers and movers with some experience in Contact Improvisation and dance making, and a deep interest in somatic, inner-life work.

Our Sliding Scale

The fees to attend Earthdance Jams and Workshops are priced on a sliding scale. Please pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This allows others who need to pay less the opportunity to attend.

Professional Rate: for those comfortably paying their rent or mortgage. The Professional Rate also helps us offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend.
Full Rate: for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Earthdance's operating costs.
Subsidized Rate: for those with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge.
Work Study is often, but not always, available to offset the costs for Earthdance events.
There are Scholarships available for this workshop. Please follow the link to apply.

Participant Community Support
As Earthdance runs as a​ community, all participants contribute to 1-2 chore shifts (typically meal cleans) throughout the workshop and a Final House Clean on Sunday, May 27th. These are great ways to connect more with your fellow participants, Earthdance staff, and to feel more at home here. We will be welcoming you into this collective home and thus so appreciate your contributions to our space!
