Teaching and Education
Marina teaches in professional and educational settings both nationally and internationally. Her class draws from her personal movement research bringing together her experience of contemporary dance and somatic practice. The class is influenced by Marina’s work as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist and investigates the movement potential within each body. Particular attention is placed on the breath, the orientation of the bones and the connective tissue matrix. Marina is interested in the act of embodying and the physicality of dancing. The class consist of open explorations often using hands on work, improvisation and set material. The work is underpinned by an ongoing curiosity and openness towards the uniqueness of what arises in the present moment of exploration. Further questioning arises from the application of our enquiry into set material. The invitation is to find ease within our dancing and be playful in our moving. The approach to moving is open and rigorous allowing dancers to expand their choices in the detailed articulation of set material.
