About the event



Ground Grooves is a floorwork approach and movement mindset that will heighten your physical sensitivity and soften your relationship with the floor. Utilizing choreographic sequencing, you will feel empowered to refine functional patterns and thoroughly embody conceptual floorwork ideas. Designed for dancers with previous floorwork experience, this medium-paced learning environment emphasizes movement quality and execution through longer sequences of movement.

A Ground Grooves workshop is for you if you:

-want to stay safe as you’re building your floorwork skills

-desire tools for softening your relationship with the floor and moving quietly

-want to refine your movement quality

-crave a thorough breakdown of floorwork patterns

-are above 18 years old! Past workshop participant ages have ranged from 18-60 years old

Dancers can expect to gain:

-a thorough understanding of the logic and concepts behind the movements

-insight into anatomically sound movement patterning to prevent injury

-deeper control over momentum and speed

-an unlocked torso – learn how the spine affects your floorwork practice

-transitional clarity – how you make sense of getting from movement to movement (ie “flow!”)

-clarifying power – where it comes from and where it goes

-a healthier relationship to dance

-deepened relationships within community

Dancers can expect to experience:

-a relaxed environment where everyone can participate with joy and curiosity

-ample personalized guidance

-connection with other dancers in a non-judgmental learning space

-small group discussions on floorwork concepts and personal growth

-low-impact alternatives that build towards more challenging movements
