"To jump high, it takes strength. It's exhausting. Landing softly means asking yourself questions like this: What is softer, and what could be softer than this? What is easier … and easier still than this? This process is the basis of Mentastics." Milton Trager
Ease in work
What is lightness? To work lightly is to know what lightness is. How do we know what lightness is? We can simply ask: What is easier? Asking a question is very different from knowing exactly what to do! So by asking the question, we come to a place of curiosity. We will explore the differences between feeling and touching. In this class we will explore waves and rhythm and the dance that comes with it.
