In the late 1980s, choreographer, teacher and LADMMI co-founder Linda Rabin felt the strong impulse to leave dance and open herself to new possibilities. Through various body-based practices, she found her way to Emilie Conrad’s Continuum work and returned to dance as a Continuum teacher. Says Robin: “In Continuum, we practice bringing our attention not so much to the movement that we do but more so to the movement that we are.”
