Eryc Taylor’s presentation at our first-ever offering of the workshop Reboot: Body-Centered Movement Practices to Reduce Stress/Enhance Well-Being, at our 2016 supportive housing conference was a revelation. Eryc’s eloquent comments about the accessibility and pleasure of dance for all types of bodies were the perfect way of warming up our audience for the hands-on demonstration, led by Eryc and his talented colleague Geneva Jenkins.

Our group of nearly 200 conference attendees, tired at the end of a long day, were up on their feet, laughing, doing partner exercises, and connecting with each other.

Eryc also gave an excellent overview of how dance and other movement practices can contribute to positive socialization for individuals recovering from trauma, promote staff/client bonding, and counter some of the negative side effects of certain medications. Eryc offered insights into how supportive housing provider Post Graduate Center for Mental Health adopted and expanded their collaboration with Eryc Taylor Dance.
