"As I learned about anatomy, weight, momentum, form, improvisation, and composition, I developed a way of moving through the world (living) as a holistic being. MF incites the ability to meld dance into everyday life, and everyday life into dance—the lives and dances that arise from this ability are extraordinary."
-Sophia Rog, MF Dance Artist & Practitioner

A forum where movement students, researchers, and professionals can come together to learn and discuss Movement Fundamentals.
2-7 weeks of intensive experimentation, in both theory and practice, with the MF paradigm. Location and duration of immersion will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
Determined by artist seeking certification.
Examples of past projects:
Completion of 625 hours, consisting of attendance at three summer MF Coalescences, an immersion in the MF paradigm alongside Jane Hawley, and the creation and completion of a community project, is needed to become a certified MF Practitioner. The completion of these requirements, as well as readiness for certification, will be collaboratively determined and understood between the individual artist seeking certification and Jane Hawley.
