Kerwin Barrington is a dance artist who works as a choreographer and teacher- passionate about building culture and tradition through dance in community. She has been studying the Axis Syllabus and a part of their International Research Network for over 5 years, recently becoming a teachers candidate. As a masters student, she is interested in studying the richness of information inherent in the body as a way to connect to ourselves, take care of our body in motion and as artistic inspiration.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

My work is inspired by time studying and traveling with the Axis Syllabus (Africa Europe and the USA) as well as my interest in the creative process. In my workshop we share our experiences and understandings around the ideas of tradition, community, the importance of being connected to nature, dance, music and art. We dance together, through structured improvisation to music and end with building a short choreography together in smaller groups. We then share our creation with each other. Through this experience I have witnessed the benefits of being embodied, of moving with others and of expressing ourselves creatively. I have noticed physical and emotional change from when we gather to when we part; more confident and at ease in body and spirit. Creating and learning dance is an opportunity to reveal hidden parts of ourselves, forgetting the outside ideal and when movement becomes second nature/known by heart/ embodied there is potential for variation, artistic choice, and JOY
