June 3 – 14, 2019: OSF Spring Workshop in Seattle with Stephanie Skura & Nate Dryden

“Some of the best teaching & guidance I’ve ever received in my dancing/movement life! Don’t miss it.”  Jeremy Steward, 2017 Certified OSF teacher 


June 3 – 14, 2019

11 AM – 2 PM, Mon – Fri

19th & Roy, Capitol Hill, Seattle

These sessions are inclusive, welcoming & vitally useful for both newcomers to the practice & experienced practitioners. OSF is deeply rooted in & fluidly expanded from Skinner Releasing Technique. These sessions integrate introductory OSF with improvisational experiments developed by Skura over three decades of interdisciplinary choreographic research.

Now in its sixth year, this annual Seattle spring workshop brings together a worldwide community for dancing, creative practice, & deep immersion — in a catalytic environment of colleagues with diverse experiences in teaching, healing, therapy, performance, theater, visual arts, writing, community-building, & visionary organization-development.

*Partially fulfills prerequisites for OSF Teacher Certification Program.*

Cost: $600 or $500 if nonrefundable deposit of $100 received by April 15, 2019.

Balance due May 15, 2019.

“Working with you creatively has instigated some of the most juicy & inspiring dancing times of my life… Hit the spot by offering the range from physical to embodied intellectual to creative composition…So much care and respect for the people with whom you share the learning space.”

Mar 8-11, 2018, Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon, 10:30 AM – 1:30 PM
facilitated by Stephanie Skura

Prerequisites: Open to those who’ve experienced the full spectrum of Introductory OSF or SRT (3 weeks) & want to deepen their practice. Some might want to pursue OSF Teacher Certification in future — or not.

Advanced OSF material is deeply rooted in & fluidly expanded from advanced Skinner Releasing practice. Though twelve codified ‘Ongoing’ SRT classes are sometimes taught, Stephanie creates unique advanced sessions, culled from a wealth of material passed on by SRT creator Joan Skinner & early practitioners, & integrated with Skura’s evolving improvisational research.  This level of the practice is sophisticated, deep, evolved in alignment approaches — richly navigating states below conscious level.
Fee: $207 USD
