Skinner Releasing Technique (1-15 introductory classes) with Bahar Vidinlioglu and Olcay Karahan
The SRT Introductory Level is a set of 15 carefully crafted classes in which the basic releasing principles are progressively introduced and in which the different materials overlap, refer back and evolve; a process that is web-like rather than linear.
We’re all born dancers, with innate coordination and animal-like grace. As time goes by, we tend to lose touch with this natural ease. Muscles tense unnecessarily, and our alignment goes askew. The Skinner Releasing Technique™ (SRT) lets us practice letting go: letting go of stress, of unnecessary holding in our body, of preconceptions about what is supposed to happen. We let go of habitual holding patterns and habitual ways of thinking in order to let something new happen. Eventually, we find energy and power. We rediscover our natural alignment, improve strength and flexibility, and awaken creativity and spontaneity.
SRT is a dance class for professionals, newcomers and beginners alike: all those interested in exploring embodiment, expression, creativity and awareness through moving.
