Bodies in Motion: Learning and Growing Through Human Movement *Cancelled*
November 3, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm$65
**Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been cancelled**
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 demonstrations of beauty. Participants will be introduced to interdisciplinary 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!
