Lisa Rich-McKelvey of FunDamental Studios in Ames, Iowa (www.fundamental-studios.com) was first introduced to Joe Williams and his Three Pillars Arts ®
approach to the Delsarte method of expression in 2005. This meeting has lead her to where she is today -- a certified Three Pillars Arts ® Delsarte teacher; passionate and excited to share her love of these universal truths with you!!!
Lisa will be teaching a series of six Three Pillars Arts ® Delsarte workshops over the weekend, where students are invited to explore, express and connect in ways that will enhance their personal interactions as well as their artistic pursuits.

Awakening to Beauty, Power and Presence: This class explores Delsarte's warm up exercises for relaxation, and harmonic balance, revealing these three qualities in any person, regardless of age, size or gender. Beauty is harmonic movement, revealing the inner beauty in action. Power is strength and readiness made accessible by the leverage and relaxation of balanced movement. Presence is
to be present in your entire body, cultivated by harmonic movement. This alignment warmup is a wonderful way to start the day, preparing us for whatever the afternoon has to offer.
Three Pillars Arts®" Principles of Gesture": Theater history has given so much attention to an idea of "Delsarte poses",
that it is rarely, if at all, known that Delsarte studied and taught principles of motion and movement dynamics. In this class
we explore Delsarte's "Nine Laws of Gesture": Force, Motion, Reaction, Sequence, Direction, Form, Altitude, Velocity, and Extension. You will see how all these movement qualities are born from specific internal conditions, and how they can inspire your creative work.
Performing with Props: Discover how to use the zones of the body and laws of gesture in your handling of any object, in order to give it meaning. In this class we will explore how your body and the space around your body contain meaning. This will allow us to see how both the way we hold props, and where we move them, give meaning to the prop, or communicate relationship to our audience.
