About the Author
Elaine Colandrea's abiding interest in the transformative capacity of the body led to a master's degree in Dance Education from Columbia University and careers in dance/choreography, somatic education and bodywork. Authorized to teach Continuum by Emilie Conrad and Susan Harper, Elaine offers workshops from New York's Hudson Valley, teaches regularly in Italy and has been an invited presenter at Associazione CranioSacrale Italia, Dharmakaya Center for Wellbeing, ISMETA, Omega Institute and Shantigar Foundation.Elaine's deep passion for bringing together somatic practice and artistic expression guided the creation of Watermark Arts. As Artistic Director of Watermark Arts, Elaine curates digital art galleries; produces exhibitions, films and performances; publishes an annual journal and hosts conferences and workshops. The inquiry closest to her heart is how the somatic arts foster healthy relationships with oneself, others and the natural world.
Rori Smith is an artist, somatic movement educator and researcher of bodily experience. She holds a master's degree in Dance from Temple University and is currently a doctoral student in Dance & Philosophy at The University of Maine. Her work explores the nature of sensation, how our senses connect us with our environment and the ethics of this relationship. Rori has been immersed in Continuum since 2014, a practice that grounds her in the subtlety of each lived moment. In service to the somatic arts community, she writes and edits for Watermark Arts.
