Nature’s Interweaving Dances of Relation

“Nature’s Interweaving Dances of Relation” is a series of outdoor dance improvisation and embodied art activities inspired by somatic ecology, site-based work, and sensory ways of learning in collaboration with nature.

Students explore the natural world while developing skills in dance improvisation, embodied walks, sensory art, site-specific performance making, storytelling, creative writing, drawing, biosonification of living plants and fungi, and more.

Many dancing practices are very human centred. Isabelle shared some amazing practices that allowed the children to expand how they think of dancing- in a way that involves the natural multi species world instead of separating their selves from it.
