Beyond Stage Presence - The power of transmission in dance

It is believed that in Ancient Egypt, music was performed in temples in order for the vibration created by the music to be transmitted to the audience which would have healing effects on all. The dancer's body was considered to be the same as a musical instrument which porduced (through dancing) its own inaudible vibration that was also transmitted. In this workshop will explore how what it means to dance 'energetically' (not in the physical sense), how to tap into a more subtle state of consciousness while still staying present in your body so you can perform. You will get to experiment with both receiving the transmission and being it's channel.
