These classes are suitable for professional dancers, graduates and experienced/keen movers.

Wed 29th June | 7-8:30pm Artist: Rosemary Spencer Open Level experience £7

THE WORKSHOP: Rosemary will lead a Skinner Releasing Technique class. Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT) is a pioneering approach to dance, movement and creative process that has evolved from the simple principle that when we are releasing physical tension, we can move with greater freedom, power and articulation. In SRT classes, spontaneous movement is evoked by guided poetic imagery, supported by music and sound, which enables a creative and easily accessible exploration of technical movement principles such as multi-directional alignment, suppleness, suspension, economy and autonomy. As participants let go of habitual holding patterns, they are supported to cultivate an increasing sensitivity to their own physical and imaginative experience.

Further information on SRT is available here –
