Skinner Releasing Technique Workshops at Jerwood DanceHouse, led by Mary-Clare McKenna

20 Aug 2018


Skinner Releasing TechniqueTM (SRT) is a somatic dance practice created by Joan Skinner in the USA and developed over fifty years. These workshops are a space for deep, immersive and expansive dancing.   Moving within a framework of minimal strain, we will explore ways of tapping undiscovered sources of strength and energy. By using a combination of guided poetic imagery and hands-on partner-explorations, our skeletal alignment finds increased efficiency and encourages a letting go of hidden tension patterns – leading to dancing that is effortless, fluid, supple and integrated.

These three workshops are open to all – those with no prior movement experience, dancers and artists of any discipline. These workshops will explore classes 1-6 of the SRT Introductory material. Further information on SRT at:

Mary-Clare Mckenna is a dance-artist and teacher, and has had the pleasure of teaching the Skinner Releasing Technique over the last eighteen years in creative communities in the UK, Europe & USA.
