Moving Between Worlds: Restoring Easeful Movement 
Together, we will explore seven practices that you can do on your own to establish the delicious flow between groundedness and spaciousness in daily life or artistic practice. Drawing on Olsen’s newest book, Moving Between Worlds: A Guide to Embodied Living and Communicating, we move, write, and reflect on the process of perceiving freshly in service of more conscious living and making.

Andrea Olsen, dance artist, writer, and educator, is author of a quartet of books on the body: Bodystories: A Guide to Experiential Anatomy (1991), Body and Earth: An Experiential Guide (2002), The Place of Dance: A Somatic Guide to Dancing and Dance Making (2014), andMoving Between Worlds: A Guide to Embodied Living and Communicating (2022) with colleague Caryn McHose, along with numerous articles and chapters in anthologies. She is a Professor Emeritus of Dance at Middlebury College in the US and teaches and performs internationally. Recent film projects co-created with media artist Scotty Hardwig include the website Body and Earth: Seven Web-Based Somatic Excursions with Caryn McHose and international dance artists, and the multiple-award-winning dance short Matkalla, filmed in Finland and Sweden with Eeva-Maria Mutka.  See
