CYCLES PRACTICE > to Dance like Yourself > first session complimentary
“Deep & powerful”, Maxine gentles one into a mobility energized for strength, ease and imagination.”
For all who move and want to do it dancing. Maxine’s movement technique is a mindful movement-dance training that integrates over 45 years of Dance, Theatre and traditional movement practices. CYCLES lifts us out of our sedentary or repetitive daily action and fills us with breath, energy, flow, co-ordinations, impulse, patterns, alignments, stretch, strength, power, self-expression through individual and group exercises that ENERGIZE and REJUVENATE our natural capacities for movement. It allows for each person to work within personal needs and references.

LED by Maxine Heppner > Evolving since the 1970’s, through dance, theatre, traditional & arts, as well as neuroscience research, Maxine’s dance career has led to her CYCLES approach that does not presume aesthetic preferences, but examines impulse, energy & the expressive natures of mobility’s many forms.
CYCLES is relevant & designed for all bodies & all forms of movement allowing & guiding each person to work within personal needs, challenges & references. Discover, recover & build ease, strength, creative expression & pleasure whether doing highly stylized, technical and-or improvisational dance, with fitness & awareness training simultaneously built in!
The work is ultimately to express your Self as Yourself.
