Art & Healing Wellness Classes with Ambiente432:
Mindful Movement and Improvisational Dance with Elise Kapsi
Wednesday, July 13, 12:00-1:00 p.m.
Pavilion Gallery, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU
Join us for a mindful movement and improvisational dance class with Elise Kapsi at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU. Elise’s class will use mindful movement and improvisation to create interpretive, expressive, and energizing work for all. The class will incorporate various dance styles from contemporary to hip-hop, allowing dancers to experience the flow of movement without inhibition. Open to all levels and experiences, no prior experience necessary. Sessions are drop-in and open to the public. No advance registration required.
This dance session encourages interaction with Ambiente432. Created by the artist and composer Trimpin, the sculpture is comprised of 12 motion-responsive resonator horns suspended from the ceiling and organized in strategic configurations, tuned precisely to 432Hz. Known as Verdi’s ‘A’, this vibration frequency recurs in the tuning of ancient Tibetan singing bowls and Stradivarius instruments, and is thought by many to be a healing frequency.
Classes are by-donation and all proceeds will go to support humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. WSU Unity of Ukraine founders will be present to say a few words about the healing efforts needed for Ukraine at the start of each class.
Please come dressed appropriately for class. Dance participants will be asked to sign a standard assumption of risk and release of liability form.
