Experiential Anatomy for Movers

Experiential Anatomy for Movers

This beginner-friendly workshop is an opportunity to get to know the internal structures that let you move! Using hands-on, sensory-based methods, we will learn the names, locations, and shapes of bones, experience and experiment with joint actions, and discover the functional purposes of muscle, bone, and fascial tissues.

No previous anatomical knowledge required. Please bring a sense of curiosity!

Miles’s passion for understanding the human body from the inside out grew from the desire to heal their own chronic injuries, and body-based trauma. Miles integrates trauma-informed principles with movement elements drawn from dance, yoga, and somatics in a playful, light-hearted approach to self-learning.

$20 per person

Aerial Fabric: Exploring the Boundless within the Bound 

Laura Stokes, half of the internationally award-winning performance troupe, The Ricochet Project, will be teaching the following workshops in Albuquerque at ABQ Circus Arts. Sign up soon to hold your spot at discounted pricing.
$50 pre-pay, $60 at the door

We will focus on precision and technique as the way to create more ease, grace and space for personal expressivity. Through the use of spinal propulsion, momentum and economic movement, students will learn how to work with gravity rather than against it, and to approach technical specificity as a gateway to expressive freedom, all the while being attentive to their own artistic voice. Students should be able to invert comfortably and know a minimum of three climbs.

Flexibility as Choreography

Laura Stokes, half of the internationally award-winning performance troupe, The Ricochet Project, will be teaching the following workshops in Albuquerque at ABQ Circus Arts. Sign up soon to hold your spot at discounted pricing.
$50 pre-pay, $60 at the door

Using the physical body as a template for exploring performative range, we will look at diversifying typical contortion positions and imbuing them with specificity and meaning. We will investigate flexibility as an avenue for occupying our furthest physiological reaches, ultimately leading to broadening not only the range of body but also of mind and art maker, redefining the flexible body as a potent expressive vehicle rather than mere spectacle.
