What Is a Movement Class?
It would currently seem that the only way to practice movement is through specific disciplines – gymnastics, dance, fitness, martial arts, etc. But there is another way – broader, more general, and connecting the dots, exploring the space between the disciplines. We create a practice around movement itself.
The goal: to create an entirely new kind of creature: the mover – a person who can thrive within any physical situation, who can flow and improvise, who is strong, resilient, flexible, capable, expressive, and coordinated, and not just one or the other of these things.
Our community is not defined by a background, an education, or any other demographic. We build ourselves around something else; our students are people who…
- Want a process
- Seek to grow in relation to their practice
- Believe it’s worth the work that they’ll put into it
- Value learning
Our mentor is Ido Portal. For over a decade, we’ve been studying under him – workshops, coaching, camps, internships, and currently the mentorship program. In the mentorship program, we meet with Ido and a small group of other mentees throughout the year. He has guided us in the opening of our space and provides critical feedback for our classes.
