Mi Vida Su Vida - Open Dance Workshop with Alexis Saenz

  1. Wednesday October 2 6:30pm
Dance Building, Betty Pease Studio Theater

The Ancestral Healing Movement Workshop is an experience that requires participants to use imagination and movement to heal past trauma and embrace resilience. During this process, students should be prepared to experience all emotions that come up for them and will leverage movement to release feelings or experiences that no longer serve them. This class requires all senses and in some cases speech to take up space in the room figuratively and physically. Using epigenetics to understand and movement as medicine to heal, the goal is to physically release trauma that is pinned up in the body and embrace generational resilience for a brighter future.

Saenz's residency at U-M also includes a screening of the film "The Process of Remembering" on Friday, Oct. 4th at 6:30 pm in the Betty Pease Studio Theater within the University of Michigan Department of Dance.
