Thinking Allowed: Dance as a Healing Art (Anna Halprin) (2001)
Anna Halprin discusses dance as a healing art. We see images drawn by her students and Anna explains dancing your drawing, and shares how she discovered her own cancer and used dance to help the medical profession with her healing.
She tells us that there is a difference between expression and technique, and that dancing your feelings is a very personal form of expression. That dance can help us come into wholeness, whatever that may be for us.
Anna Halprin's diverse career has spanned the field of dance since the late 1930s, creating revolutionary directions for the art form and inspiring fellow choreographers to take modern dance to new dimensions.
