“The body is not a set entity. It constantly changes, like the weather.” - Min Tanaka, founder of BodyWeather
Join us for the first block of classes this year! Negotiating this new unpredictable norm, let's share space together again and explore what it means to exchange energy and to learn from each other's observations.
As we restart our classes in Sydney's beautiful Brand-X dance hub, you can rest assured that both the venue and our teaching systems are in place for us to be COVID-SAFE.
You can drop in as a casual attendee or get discounted full-block bookings.
BodyWeather is a movement practice that fuses contemporary and ancient knowledge from both the East and the West. Exploring sensation and imagination, a range of playful exercises develop creativity, sensitivity and insight. Different energies and ways of moving and being – from fast and dynamic to slow and meditative – enable discovery of the body as an environment connecting to the greater environment.
Founded in Japan and adopted internationally, BodyWeather has roots in kinesiology, martial arts, dance and theatre. It was introduced to Australia in 1989 by Tess de Quincey who was a dancer with Min Tanaka in Japan 1985-1991. Bringing together lineages of physical traditions with contemporary thought, it opens new doors to ancient knowledge and wisdom.
