Louis Gervais has been getting people moving and connecting for more than 30 years. From creatively moving first graders to creating community with high school students, Louis especially enjoys bringing physical creativity to non-dancers. He first began exploring movement at the age of five and during his years as a dancer, went on to perform with more than 25 professional companies around the world.
Louis has created numerous works as a solo artist and holds a Masters of Fine Arts degree in dance. In his studies, he split his focus between danced religions and Somatics, the movement practices that explore the relationship between the body and mind.
Moving Intimacy is a synthesis of art, Somatics and Louis’ mature practice of meditation, improvisation, sacred intimacy, Tantra and yoga. It has evolved over the years from a weekend workshop to a ritual/performance entitled IN TO ME/SEE with 10 dancers and life music. And now, for the first time, as an online course.
