My background is as a dancer, improvisational movement artist, choreographer, equestrian, movement therapist, educator, writer, body worker, and actor. For the past fourteen years I have made dances with horses. Since I was in third grade, I have been writing passionately. For the past twenty years I have said I would write a book. Now I write a blog and have three books in the works. My blog is an important part of my daily practice, and my way of sharing what excites me and what may be helpful to you.
what: I am dedicated to nourishing improvisational practice in work and play, and discovering how to be non-habitual in mind and body. My research is embodied 100% of the time. My coaching and teaching are about helping you find focus and live your most embodied, improvisational and joyful life.
why: I believe in deepening creativity and awareness playfully, through the body, and in finding ways to expand knowing with all of our six trillion cells, not just in the ones perched on our necks.
who: I work with dancers, visual artists, actors, writers, horse people and folks of all backgrounds and experience who are seeking new ways to approach their spiritual and creative practice.
how: You can work with me one-to-one. I am available for both creativity and performance coaching. I am available to teach workshops and classes in movement improvisation, composition, and creative process.
You can book a performance of Paula Josa-Jones/Performance Works for your season, event or festival. I can also create new work or mount a repertory piece for your company. You can subscribe to my daily writing here. (You can unsubscribe at any time.)
