IN CLASS this class focuses on clearing and clarifying movement pathways in the body so that we can work with ease while cultivating greater function and quality of motion as we dance. Ilan Lev Method is a playful, somatic approach which gives the body a chance to expand its perception of what it can accomplish, physically and energetically. We unlock the breath, drop the seriousness and cultivate our curiosity, which allows us to become more adaptable, clear and conscious in movement.

We begin with ILM research exercises in which we use resting forces like leaning and falling to send our bodies into motion with the aid of rich imagery. Gradually increasing the complexity, range and speed of movement we find possibilities to ride what we’ve generated further into space. We take these principles into improvisation, transforming our approach to familiar forms and coordinations as we explore the expansive potential of our physical form. Playing with the body as a vessel for movement to pass through, we experience more clarity, efficiency and possibility with less effort.
