“Dancers are Musicians are Dancers.” – José Limón, 1966

 

Movement to Piano

Music

Music is naturally physical. When skilled musicians connect with essential elements of movement in music, they discover new dimensions of depth, nuance, and meaning. I offer free exercises and ideas for approaching specific pieces of music (with free scores) in my searchable “Ideas to Try” collection.

Dance

Dance

Music and Dance share common ground. The same elements – time and energy – are expressed in sound for music, and in space for dance. It’s a broader overlap than we might think, and a greater area for creative work than we might imagine. Tuning ears toward music can expand dancers’ abilities as teachers, choreographers, and performers.

Children

Young Children

Children know the natural connections among music, movement, communication, imagination and growth. We may have more to learn from them than to teach them. Even so, MusiKinesis has books available based on earlier years of my Eurhythmics teaching, meant to model processes (most of my specifics have changed). Find plenty of free ideas here in “Ideas to Try.”
