    What Is Open Floor?

    Open Floor is an embodied movement practice bringing self awareness, mindfulness, and purpose to life. 

    “With no dance steps to learn, we will follow instincts and simple invitations to spark curiosity. Dancing to a varied musical soundscape, we’ll move to find presence…to question…to feel and allow possibilities to emerge in the moment.”  Ann Shuptrine

    Developmental Movement Patterns

    According to Bonny Bainbridge (BMC), all mind patternings are expressed in movement, through the body. And all physically moving patterns have a mind. That’s what I work with.

    Move and Include

    As we practice, we learn to move along these Continuums:

    • Fixed and Fluid
    • Habit and Choice
    • Move and Include
    Class Structure
    • Open Attention
    • Enter
    • Explore
    • Settle

     

    About Me

    I believe that the world needs embodied, empathic, creative and authentic people. I strongly believe in linking instead of ranking, in collaboration instead of competition. In equality against hierarchy. Embodiment is key and basic in life because we perceive all of life through the body and our physical, emotional and social inherited patterns. Instant knowing and decision making seem to be more and more important in a fast running digital world. When we can reach that creative moment of being present in the here and now with whatever is there, everything changes!
