Guided Imagery Sessions - Our daily lives can cause aches and pains such as tight shoulders, aching backs, and headaches. In these stressful states, how do we relax? Guiding the body through relaxing imagery is a way to loosen your joints and release your muscles. The goal of the session is to clear your mind and get your body to rest.  As a resident artist at Georgetown University Hospital's, Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, I provide guided imagery as relaxation for patients and family members. Sessions are 5-15 minutes and may take place seated, or laying in bed.  Contact me for more info. Movement Classes and Workshops in Contemporary Dance and Improvisation - These classes range from the beginner to the advanced level.  We will activate the body through a series of floor phrases and moving through space.  The style of moving is based on our individual understanding of our skeletal structure, kinesthetic awareness and connection with breath.  We will cultivate strength, flexibility, endurance, sensitivity to gravity, momentum and presence.  No scheduled classes at this time. Contemplative Dance Workshops - Contemplative Movement Practice is a combination of sitting meditation, personal warm up and group improvisation developed by Barbara Dilly.  In this workshop, we will empty our minds of life obligations and transition into being fully present together.  Experience both an internal/personal focus and an external awareness of others.  This practice is open to anyone interested in expanding your meditation practice to movement or being more present in your dancing.  Contact me for more info. In addition, I have taught workshops tailored to the themes and interests of the participants including Partner Stretch, Contact Improvisation, and the Music and Dance Improv Lab.
