"I created Movement Exploration classes with the intention of providing opportunities to expose areas in need of care and support within the unique body of each individual who comes to class; To prevent further development of physical dysfunction and find ways of nurturing that which already exists... All the while, allowing freedom to express the one and only spirit that makes you YOU in this crazy jungle of humanity.

We can change our physiology-- structural imbalances, holding patterns, energetic distribution, movement ability, and more-- with a little persistence and positive intention. Greater physical freedom is in reach. All we have to do is start trying, keep trying, and fall in love with the joy of setting and reaching more goals once we've reached the first one.

Come join me in a unique experience of deepening our awareness of the unique potential we each hold."

Teacher: Heidi Krause recently moved back to Madison from NYC to start her Freelance career as a Choreographer, Teacher and Performer. She is a Board Certified Massage Therapist, which is apparent in her Dance and Movement Therapy Classes, often emphasizing anatomical awareness and safety in technique execution, in addition to encouraging expressive freedom and artistry when appropriate for the student. Her performance credits include soloist roles with Madison's Kanopy Dance Company; working with members of the Martha Graham Dance Company. You can see her most recent, local choreography in MCVDC's September show this summer (2016).
