About the Creator:
Heidi Krause is a freelance Visual Artist, Somatic-Creative Movement Educator, Performer, and Contemporary Choreographer. Her signature style developed out of Eastern Healing studies, and general Global Movement studies. She's enjoyed discovering beautiful movement in, Southeast Asia, the UK, and across the US. Currently, she is assessing and integrating her collection of muscle memories through the Laban-Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies in Brooklyn, New York.
Before devoting herself to Movement Exploration, she performed with the Kanopy Dance Company, as a soloist, for 6 years while completing her Board Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.
While gaining experience in the therapeutic field, she explored as many forms of movement as possible, to better understand her body's natural impulses in various states of mind and environments.
Making her way from mainstream and underground movement subcultures in the US, to ancient movement meditation methods stemming from belief systems around the globe, she observed contemporary reformations of dance styles, encompassing both expressive and therapeutic intention.
This collection of research fuels her curiosity of the varied, evolving creative expressions which humanity possesses. She finds beauty in the unique and meaningful contributions which are specific to each individual on earth. She appreciates the fact that all humans have unique stories, unique perspectives, and unique struggles, which teach us to understand ourselves and the world more clearly, when we take time to listen.
