Dance Limerick and the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at UL are delighted to welcome Barbara Mahler to Limerick.

Open to professional dancers and actors/movers.
Klein Technique has been in development since the mid 1970s. It is a cohesive movement system that connects the body and mind. The result, over time, is a clarity and sureness of movement, fluidity and a new level of understanding the innate intelligence of one's body. When the bones are aligned we become connected and grounded, efficient and alive. Firmly grounded in the principles of change, possibilities and efficiency through the tools of process, the technique weaves together theory and practice. The workshop will focus on the inherent relationship between these principles and our personal relationship to our bodies.
Barbara Mahler is a widely respected choreographer, performer, movement educator, bodyworker and recipient of a 2013 BAX Arts Educator Award. She travels extensively as a guest artist to many festivals and colleges across the US, Canada and Europe, as a master teacher of and major contributor in the development and outreach of Klein Technique™.
Barbara's choreographic vision and passion is the small and intimate dance for large and small spaces. An alumn of Hunter College, NYC, she holds an MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Barbara has been a recipient of many grants for her choreography and teaching.
