~Wednesday Morning Class with Eric Geiger~ For five consecutive Wednesdays, Eric Geiger will guide an advanced level dance technique class. ~Where~ Malashock Dance Studio at Dance Place in NTC 2650 Truxtun Road, San Diego, CA 92106. ~When~ Wednesday, February 4 through Wednesday March 4, 10am-12pm. Each class is FREE! Contact: ericgeiger@cox.net for any questions. ~Class Description~ What if dance technique is a way of organizing, reorganizing, and disorganizing our selves in order to arrive in our dancing? Each day we’ll begin with a Feldenkrais Method Awareness Through Movement lesson to create space for sensation and time for feedback from our selves. Then, we’ll unwind habits and inhibitions, take embodied risks, and mess with space and time. Finally, we’ll dive into complex, multilayered dance phrases that create contexts for practicing simplicity and magnificence. Let’s value being in it together while simultaneously listening to our responsive/responsible selves. I'm committed to being with you and I trust that something exquisite will happen. About Eric Geiger: I am a dancer. I also make dances and collaborate with other artists. Making connections within my whole self, and with others, helps me to navigate through, interact with, and attempt to make sense of the world around me. My values around performance and dance have been deeply influenced by my experiences in performing works by and collaborating with artists such as Bill T. Jones, William Forsythe, Stephen Petronio, Susan Marshall, Maguy Marin, Angelin Preljocaj, Nancy McCaleb, Sarah Shelton Mann, Deborah Hay, LIVE, Leslie Seiters, Jess Humphrey and Anya Cloud. I’m the Co-Artistic Director of PADL West, a laboratory for performance, art, and dance, alongside Karen Schaffman. I also do my best to guide courses around what dance is and can be at UCSD as full-time faculty. I’m in my third year of training as a Feldenkrais Method practitioner. This work is helping me to better understand what the least amount of effort means as well as the idea of reversibility and re-direction in movement and multiple other contexts.
