Thinc week is March 23-27 on campus, and one of the many highlights will be a dance workshop led by Stanford University dance instructor Aleta Hayes, who uses dance and free movement as a route to leadership and collaboration:

What new ways can we relate to one another? Experiential inquiry into concepts of social accupressure, viewing the view, opening to other’s realities, appreciation of tacit knowledge and mining social knots begin to lead the way.

Expect to engage with dialogue, intuition, participatory design, artistic intervention, performance co-creation and charrettes to drive the shift in perspectives on social movements.

Hayes' workshop will be held March 26 at 11 a.m. in the New Dance Theatre, room 276, in the Dance Building. The workshop is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided afterward.

This is a rare, if not unique, take on using physical movement to access our cerebral powers of synergy and coaction. If we can fuse new ideas with this kind of mind-and-body harmony, just imagine (thinc?) what can be accomplished.
