JCWK Dance Lab

These scientists look at the body to learn about the individual. Ancient Chinese and Indian medicine associate locations in the body with with physical, emotional, and psychological health.

Our bodies are the way we connect with our surrounding world.

Using dance as its medium, JCWK Dance Lab investigates the relationships between Joy creation, Community, concepts of mental and physical Wellness, and self-aWareness, Kinesthetic, somatic, and anatomical understanding, art making, and non-violent, positive, social change.


  1. I thought you might like to know about The Healing Dance Network


    the Healing Dance Network. I have been looking for a web between the various healing dance studies, theories, practitioners and proponents through which to find, share and expand on my own studies. I have been working with dance as a self-healing resource and looking intuitively and through on-line research to open my knowledge and understanding into the possibilities and realities of healing through dance. I am hoping you will let me know about your own search and findings and how we might work together to bring our learning further.
