Faculty
David Hurwith has been creating and presenting dances since 1981.
These dances have been performed at theaters in the United States
and Europe. The dancing has been informed by Mr. Hurwith’s
immersion into Contact Improvisation, Authentic Movement and Body-
Mind Centering®. The inspiration of Jazz music with its sublime
evocations of idiosyncrasy and moments of humor have led David to
experiment with a variety of methods and forms in creating work that
express the beauty and irony of many human moments and the
possibilities inside perception.  David offers classes in Authentic
Movement, Dance Improvisation, and Somatics. Since moving to
California in 2011, David has taught Embodied Anatomy at SOMAfest,
Calarts and the University of California, Santa Barbara.
