Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT) is a dance technique thatis characterised by its use of imagery, tactile studies and embodied dancing.It differs from other dance techniques in that it fuses improvisationalapproaches, image and alignment without the use of set steps.
In SRT we are unravelling layers of holding and letting goof preconceptions of who we are in our dancing, and in our very selves, andperhaps therefore in our approach to our creativity.
Everyone is welcome.
