The anatomy and human biomechanics for
movement and dance
The Pelvic Region
In this class our work will be focused on the pelvic region.
Our study of the moveable bones and joints of the pelvis will lead to explorations of anterior/posterior motion, hip openings and closings, and an understanding of the impact of the center of gravity. We will study the musculature that connects the pelvis to the core, the pelvic floor, and how these muscles organize to generate integrated movement.
The Shoulder Girdle
In Liquid Body we will attend to the regions of the shoulder girdle and the ribcage. We will study the bones and joints, and explore their mobility. Our analysis of the ribcage will lead us to view it as a site of support, and specifically as a hydro-pneumetic system that allows for the stabilization and mobility of the body's vertical axis. Movement explorations of the shoulder girdle will yield greater function and expression of the arms.
Subtle Body focuses on the work of the body's vertical axis, the spinal vertebra, and the spine's role in integrating the pelvis and the shoulder girdle. We will study the anatomy and biomechanics of the spine, standing alignment, and the chain of muscles that generate dynamic movement with special attention to spinal twists and three-dimensional spirals.
