Due to the community need demonstrated by our last free series of GYROTONIC® sessions, ARCOS has expanded the program for 2020: eight applicants received four private sessions each with ARCOS director Erica Gionfriddo to explore the GYROTONIC® Method, a movement modality that works the entire body through traction, “opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences.” (More information at the link.) ARCOS’ choreographic approach is inspired in part by the principles of GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS®, and these methods can support everyone from professional dancers and physical theater performers to anyone in recovery from injuries or experiencing chronic pain.
In-person sessions have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. Check back here for developments.
This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division
of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
