Harmonics is a movement system “discovered through the inspiration and teaching of the Holy Spirit” by Paula Douthett, a pioneer of Christian dance “which enables a person to become sensitive to the physical laws which God created…out of His love, wisdom and goodness.” (Douthett, 1993, Harmonics, p. 1)
These physical laws include gravity, centrifugal force, inertia, momentum and pendulum effect. “In Harmonics we learn to work with the natural physical forces … and in becoming sensitive to them, we experience a beautiful harmony which affects our souls and spirits as well.” (Douthett, p. 7)
Paula Douthett came to Calgary to teach Harmonics several times from 1995 to her last visit in May 2015. Her work is now carried on by those of us she trained in Harmonics. This workshop will teach the basic Harmonic movements and how they can be combined to create a variety of worship dances.
Workshop will include:
- the 4 basic Harmonic movements and first variations
- group Harmonic movement
- worship and prayer in movement using Harmonics
- creation of a dance by the group using the movements to various music
