DESCRIPTION

Dance classes will explore works of art through your body and turn them into lived experience.

How does an artist translate memories into sculpture? How do emotions affect our bodies? 'Sculptures are me,' Louise Bourgeois said, describing her work. 'My body is a sculpture.' Join choreographer Yulia Chekmas to explore works of art through your body and turn them into lived experience.

Classes will focus on tactile contact with sculpture, breathing and concentration exercises and visual thinking to help reconnect body to mind, and develop motor skills and spatial orientation.
