Returning to my “second home” _Minneapolis, MN for a long week=end workshop – Klein Technique May 12-14..My almost annual visits to Minneapolis began in 1992, first with New Dance Lab (Linda Shapiro), Dancing Feet (Rosy Simas), a Cowls Grant from the University. Dancers in the city still use the technique to help with care for their bodies, and lengthen their dancing career. Annual/ semi annual workshops are now organized by Wendy Ruble and Jennifer Arave. Come and join this amazing community!
For movers of all types and styles, for interest in exercises to help support the lower back and pelvis, and to be more aware of the body we live in.
