* 7 (Sunday): 11:00 AM— Bagel Brunch: Popping Myths& Addressing Meaning in Human Movement
Betsy Keller KaganBetsy Keller Kagan, MFA, CMA, RMT, a new member of Kol Hadash, will draw on her career as a Certified Movement Analyst and movement therapist as well as dancer and choreographer to present her paper - a case study in which she describes how she treated a dancer's back injury through the application of a movement rather than a biomechanical model. In her presentation she will create awareness of some of the common misconceptions about movement that actually serve to diminish rather than promote movement function and expression. Having designed and taught specialized classes for seniors for 28 years, she will include demonstrations and examples that engage the group individually in experiential explorations. And she will introduce ways in which we can overcome injuries and embrace new possibilities as "movers" at any age.Please bring your appetite for a delicious lox and bagel brunch. Public: $10/ea.
