The Ishangi Method
Inspired by Dunham
This workshop was inspired by the work of internationally renowned scholar, activist, and artist Katherine Dunham and co-created with Dr RaShon of the Ishangi Institute.
The Dunham Technique began as an exploration of how western trained dancers could relate to, participate in, and articulate the authenticity of another’s culture by developing control, strength and self- awareness.
By combining elements of the Dunham Technique with movement from GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® we will explore how to access our authentic personal power.
1. Gain awareness and acceptance of your unique rhythm
2. Increase your rhythmic strength and capacity
3. Experience how to sustain your rhythm within the group dynamic
Whether you are a dancer, an athlete, a fitness enthusiast, or simply an individual who appreciates the gift that is our human form, learn to move with effortless power and grace.
