David Ka Nang Leung
My name is David Leung and I am from Hong Kong, China. My journey as a movement artist, teacher, and researcher began when I started dancing at the age of 19. When I was 24, I met my first Gyrotonic teacher, the late Geta Constantinescu, and her teaching awakened the natural dancer in me. More than two decades later, I still feel very much indebted to her ingenious, inspirational, humorous, and loving sharing of knowledge and experience. Once my body was open, it became hungry for many other movement experiences: contact improvisation with many different movement research topics, qigong, taiji, Movement Intelligence taught by the late Ruthy Alon, the Feldenkrais Method, Body-Mind Centering by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, among others. My recent research on "skin brain" which stemmed from the above as well as further study in various bodywork modalities has allowed me to intuitively facilitate the healing process of my students through touch. The results often amaze them as well as me. I will continue to learn and grow in this way until I leave this body behind to join my beloved teachers and predecessors dancing in the cosmos.
