CHI Movement Arts - CHI Awareness Practice

Chi Movement Arts Center

1316 S. 9th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19147

Class Description: Lin's signature CHI Awareness Technique is the foundational technique for Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D). It explores the spaces where Western dance forms including ballet, modern, post-modern and hip-hop meet the impulses of Eastern philosophies, including Taoism and Zen Buddhism. The class focuses on how, through modulation of breath (or "chi", in Mandarin), weight and weightlessness co-exist simultaneously and energy seamlessly transitions among explosive bursts of rapid, expansive phrase work, and absolute stillness. Class begins quietly and gradually builds in complexity, culminating in dynamic phrase work. CHI Awareness Technique expands the perimeter of Western dance practices through an Eastern perspective that reflects Lin's conception of dance as the ultimate integration of body, spirit and mind.
