Fall/Winter 2018 Workshop Series
Dance Therapy/Healing Through Movement Practice and Creation with Sarah Brahim
This workshop will help you discover deeper connection to your own body and the way you move, no matter your current level. We will explore dancing through memories and personal experiences working to continue intentional dance and movement relationships between our body and mind. We will also have fun and practice dancing to just feel good, release tension, and let go. There will be a creative portion of the class where we will (weather permitting) take movement therapy skills out into nature. We will also incorporate bodywork and massage to finish the workshop feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Sarah Brahim is a movement artist passionate about creating meaningful work with artists of varying mediums. She grew up studying, choreographing, performing, and teaching jazz, ballet, and tap in Portland, Oregon. She then studied at the San Francisco Conservatory of Dance and in 2016 she graduated from London Contemporary Dance School (LCDS) and holds a BA Hons degree in contemporary dance. At LCDS she further explored the depth and resonance of movement, discovering her passion for improvisation, collaboration, choreographing, and healing through movement. In 2017 she graduated from Portland State University with a degree in Public Health specializing in Community Health Education. Returning to her roots, Sarah is currently crafting, choreographing, and performing live with local Portland artists and expanding her repertory as a tap dancer. She believes dance can be life changing, transformative, and a universal language to bring people together.
