Rooted in experimental, contemplative and ritualistic approaches to creative process/composition, these sessions explore perception and finding a groove within natural cycles.
Writing as an access to NOR/articulation and imagination...
Regan's devoted study of the internal arts and tribal-style dance forms spans more than 15 years and serves as the foundation and inspiration for her work. Drawn from a young age to Eastern mysticism and contemplative arts, she noticed that dance is always integrated into the fabric of cultures with a respect for intuitive wisdom and a sense of the sacred feminine. She also noticed that in many of the movement classes she attended, a sense of mystery and curiosity was absent, replaced by competitiveness, anxiety and obsession with surface appearances.
Regan’s aspiration as a movement guide is to help mend the conceptual riff that separates a sense of the sacred from daily life. The potential for this healing can be found in re-establishing a relationship with all aspects of our bodied selves. Educated by working with her own hip dysplasia and a minor scoliosis, Regan uses ten years of practice as a Rolfer/Somatic Educator, 12 years of study under Hatha Yoga master So a Diaz and six years as a meditation instructor to infuse her guidance with language that respects below-the-neck and creates an atmosphere of relaxed play. Every gesture can become a demonstration of easy resilience when we allow the quiet dance to reconnect us to our life, to the ground upon which we stand and to each other.
