"Group Dance Improvisation", 1976. Shot on 16mm film.

"Group Dance Improvisation" is an example of Mettler's philosophy of group dancing. Members of the group make up their own movements expressing individual feelings and at the same time they relate their movements to the movements of others, creating group movement forms.

Barbara Mettler, dancer, dance educator, author, and film and video producer, developed her own style of modern dance, which emphasized improvisation. Her core principles were beauty, freedom, and democracy. Dance was conceived as a fundamental human activity, of which all people are capable, as opposed to an elite, choreographed, performance art.

The Barbara Mettler Archive came to Hampshire College in 2003. For more information: mettlerdance.hampshire.edu
