Each year Luther College hosts a forum where movement students, researchers, and professionals can come together to learn and discuss Movement Fundamentals.
The Space: Luther College Center for the Arts, Decorah, Iowa
Outcomes: Each artist/teacher/practitioner will learn to implement the guiding principles of the Movement Fundamentals curriculum into their own individual research, practice or training curriculum.
Who's invited: This is a method and movement-based seminar for somatic educators, body and healing arts practitioners, professional and pre-professional artists/teachers, along with dance and movement artists and teachers.
“What if we view dance artists as we do other artists in that we don't train painters to mimic Picasso. I am interested in training dancers that look like themselves and can do their own thing with this material."
