Movement/Improvisation class

Movement / Improvisation
Friday, Nov 4 and Friday, Nov 11 6-8Pm

Hello, I’m Kelly Hurlburt, a dancer and movement maker in the Columbus area! Come join me as I facilitate and teach another movement/ dance/ improvisation class!!! We’ll explore some guided improvisation, play with different movement scores, and work with spoken word or text. No experience is needed, just willingness in mind and body!

Come with the mindset of play and experimentation and if you’d like to…. come with a piece of text that already speaks to you or resonates in your mind, body and bones!! Otherwise, I will bring some to play with as well!

Hope to see you there. To find out more about me OR perhaps more about my interests visit:

Fee: $10-15 sliding scale ( OR pay what you can)

Movement Ecology

Movement Ecology
every 1st and 3rd Thursday, 7-8:30Pm

a movement class that is part philosophy, part dance, part biology, part mindfulness. Every other week, we will come together to learn from each other, make movement, share experiences and tune into the inherent wisdom of our inner and outer environments. This is for dancers and non-dancers, nature lovers, permaculturalists, anatomy geeks, healers, meditators and scientists.

we move from and investigate the following assumptions:

our bodies are part of, not separate from, nature
our bodies are themselves ecosystems
just as the earth maintains balance to support life,
so do our bodies work to sustain our lives
we are always finding balance inside of constant flux
connecting with the movements happening inside of us
supports our movement to connect with what is outside of us

ARIADNE is an a/v experimental sacred music duo based in Brooklyn, New York comprised of Christine Lanx and Benjamin Forest. With a focus on interspersing the ritualism of ancient spirituality and the secular iconography of the postmodern, ARIADNE flawlessly bridge the two worlds through their intricate musical compositions, striking digital visuals, and captivating live performances.

Observance_003: is an audio/visual performance that draws from themes of ecstatic visions, the eternal feminine and dream symbolism depicted in a digital landscape of infinite environments and harsh textures. The performance system developed by ARIADNE for Observance_003 explores the improvisatory interplay of music and visuals mediated by machine learning, physics simulation and motion analysis techniques. 

Past/future performances: MIT List Visual Arts Center, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Made in NY Media Center by IFP, Elastic Arts (Chicago), Harvestworks (NY), University of Idaho, University of Denver, Reverse Gallery (NY), Trans-Pecos (NY), Bunker Projects (PA), DFBRL8R Performance Art Gallery (Chicago), and Gallery 788 (Baltimore).
