Bodies in Motion: Learning and Growing Through Human Movement
November 3 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm$65
This Dialogues seminar looks at physical movement as a mode of artistic expression, learning, and self-improvement. From dance to informal “parkour,” or the art of moving through our environment, the human body is capable of extraordinary feats of dexterity and strength and demonstra- tions of beauty. Participants will be introduced to interdisci- plinary dance to see how visual and physical learning can be applied to many problems.We will then discuss the history of parkour and its origins in health-conscious movements of the 20th century. Part lecture, part demonstration, and part interaction, this seminar will get you out of your seat!
