Continuum uses movement, breath and sound to come into contact and communication with ourselves and with others. The practice dissolves inhibitions and liberates our expression. Rather than following a fixed system of postures or formalized exercises that maintain patterned structure without release, the explorations delve into the play of emerging and dissolving of form. Thus we learn how to give space to our own emerging form and to let go of inhibiting forms and structures. Our form then becomes fluidly mutable, dissolving and shaping itself anew.
Emilie Conrad was a dancer and choreographer. In the 1960's she used this new approach to movement for her choreography. Out of this work, in 1967 Continuum Movement emerged as a resource for health, creativity and innovation.
