Basic Anatomy (DAN2132.01)

Elena Demyanenko

To understand the working of our own bodies, we will examine bones, deep muscles, organs, and nerves using images, visualization and touch, working to facilitate the ability to access the innate intelligence of each participants own unique mechanism. We will study the relationship and coordination between anatomical landmarks for a more thoughtful exploration of possibility and potential. Through the processes of touching and sensing, we will be able to highlight and study differences between individuals. We will look at a variety of sketches in addition to drawing and writing assignments in class and at home in order to deepen our knowledge. Improvisation will be used to apply this knowledge to actions so we can immediately demonstrate practical ways of moving, initiating, and relating. We will utilize reading material from Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Moshe Feldenkrais, and Susan Klein, plus many other teachers to discuss, analyze and compare.
