Throughout this term’s series of Skinner Releasing Technique classes with Lizzy le Quesne, Oxford based artist Antonia Bruce has been drawing the dance, capturing the imaginative worlds of participating dancers as they improvise in response to SRT’s very particular conception and guidance of the moving body and persona.  Antonia has kindly allowed me to reproduce some of her beautiful and evocative images, a potent reminder of these sessions, encapsulating moments of watchfulness and spontaneous movement.  She will be exhibiting her work drawing the dance at the Jericho Art Gallery in the spring; watch this space for further details…

Enjoy!

Following a very positive response to the 5 classes in Skinner Releasing Technique with Lizzy Le Quesne, we have decided to continue these, with the aim to complete the full programme of 15 classes.  The plan is to do a further 3 classes from the series this term, and then 8 in the New Year.  Obviously this will be dependent on maintaining sufficient numbers, so I do hope that as many of you as possible will take advantage of a great local opportunity to experience this fascinating and inspiring approach.

The next three classes are on the following Mondays:
18th, 25th November, 2nd December, 11.00am-1.00pm at United Reformed Church Hall
The price for these remains at £10 per class for those dancing or £5 for those drawing.  You can find out more about the classes here:
