This Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT) workshop is open to all: from those who are new to the form
or those looking to reconnect with their releasing process. Over this weekend we will cover the first
three classes from the SRT introductory pedagogy. There will be time for dancing, drawing, writing,
and a lunch break on the Saturday.

In SRT classes, spontaneous movement evoked by guided poetic imagery, supported by music and
sound, enables a creative and easily accessible exploration of technical movement. Principles such as
multi-directional alignment, suppleness, suspension, economy and autonomy are explored within a
creative process. As participants let go of habitual holding patterns, they are supported to cultivate an
increasing sensitivity to their own physical and imaginative experience. The result can be a deeply
embodied awareness of new possibilities in how they move – both inside the studio as dancers and
creators, and in daily life.
