In essence this course is an exploration of GYROKINESIS® Movement through the lens of Laban Movement Analysis. This includes an introduction to Laban’s language of movement, Bartenieff Fundamentals®, the five Sacred Solids (sometimes called the Platonic Solids) and Laban’s movement scales with those 3-dimensional figures. We will handle models of the solids, draw them, build them, and move within them experiencing the dynamic affinities that give life to our Gyrokinesis practice.
We will move on the floor, through all levels, and traveling across and around the available space. We may take field trips to sites outside the studio depending on availability and weather. As with all my courses, content and approach will be influenced and informed by what knowledge, experience and questions students bring with them. A friend, student and colleague calls this “The Wisdom Pool.”
Sacred Geometry and Gyrokinesis Movement is the result of a long lifetime (70+ years) exploring the expression of life into form. This course is an Update Course for both GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS®.
BIO: ClydeRae Jolie-Ashe, Specialized GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Master Trainer
I was born and grew up in a small town in Montana, surrounded by gardens, rivers, mountains, farms, horses. Always fascinated by how life expresses itself I watched the strawberries send out runners to make new plants, the rivers change their courses with the years, felt my body’s response to the rhythms of horses’ gaits, and watched the sun and the stars move through the skies during the seasons. I experienced the magic of numbers and words, games and hikes and swims and the endless joy of movement and vision and touch. I touched the world and felt the world touch back.
A mother, a grandmother, a teacher and always a student I sense life as learning and learning as movement. Always inquiring.
Tuition $350. Studio fee varies depending on site.
