The body is an instrument that can be fine-tuned in order to access one's movement voice and sensitize our kinesthetic perception. Dances arise from the stories that are held in our bodies; collective memories, experiences, ancestry, and inner mythic worlds. Technique helps us to know ourselves and, at the same time, challenge those perspectives, creating paths towards unexplored potential. This comprehensive training includes work on the floor, self-acupressure, and challenging movement sequences.

Rodrigo Esteva and Mirah Moriarty have studied and performed Improvisation over the last thirty+ years with renowned teachers in the field. Improvisation is a skill that is cultivated to partner with each moment with a receptive and instinctual body. This class focuses on challenging physical investigations that break open our ability to listen to the mythical inner world, the environment and each other. Participants explore ways to enter states of transformative action through breath, directives, awareness and clarity of purpose.

Site-specific dance has been a significant aspect of Rodrigo Esteva and Mirah Moriarty's training over the last 30 years. They have created original performances in spaces such as abandoned boats on the shores of Nayarit, an old Acacia tree at the edge of an endangered public shoreline, to following the path of an urban creek. They draw on their experience with a focus on re-wilding our physical nature while strengthening our instincts, sense of wonder and deepening our experiential relationship with the body and place. With the senses activated, we listen and respond to the environment with the body as our vessel for communication. The participants are guided to find the truth in the body as they move through dream states and greater awareness.
