It looks like there's a chance I may make it in to Dance 420: Dance Aesthetics. Also, Bronwyn reccommended an embodied movement course through the Academy of Burlesque, and it looks like I'll be able to take a couple sessions of that in the future.
On the poetry front, I went searching yesterday for spoken word artists to draw inspiration from. Most are really heavily into the street aesthetic of spoken word, which isn't so much what I'm aiming for, but one poet really stood out - Shira Erlichman. What a great performance - especially how she sashays between prosaic and poetic language, and conversational and representational gesture.
