Anne Cooper, a Eugene native, comes home after 25 years. Her movement education began at the Eugene School of Ballet. This strong foundation led her to study jazz dance here in Eugene with Nicola Foster and in New York City with Betsy Haug. Anne also worked for fitness legend, Molly Fox, at the Heavenly Bodies studio in NYC as a fitness instructor. In Eugene Anne managed and taught at her own dance and exercise studio, BodySculpture, and also choreographed for and performed with her dance company, The Leftside Dancers. Anne has taught Jazz Dance at LCC here in Eugene and at Lewis & Clark College as well as at Body Moves in Portland. As a student and teacher of movement and, also, as a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Teacher®, Anne is sure that movement makes the world go round! www.betweenthebeat.info
The Feldenkrais Method®: Awareness Through Movement® with Anne Cooper, Wed 4:15-5:15pm.
Awareness Through Movement (ATM) lessons consist of comfortable, easy movements that gradually evolve into movements of greater range and complexity. These precisely structured movement explorations involve thinking, sensing, moving and imagining. Many are based on developmental movements and ordinaryfunctional activities. The emphasis is on learning which movements work better and noticing the quality of these changes in your body. Through increased awareness, you will learn to abandon habitual patterns of movement and develop new alternatives, resulting in improved flexibility and function. Wednesdays 4:15-5:15pm, B side studio.
If you are interested in Feldenkrais, for more information you can reach Anne at 206.351.7005 or firstname.lastname@example.org
