As Anna Halprin celebrates her 97th year, she and Daria Halprin return to Esalen for their annual teaching collaboration. Pioneers in their respective fields of dance and expressive arts-based psychology, the Halprins worked with Fritz Perls, Ida Rolf, and others in the early years of Esalen, and were part of the groundbreaking human potential and postmodern dance movements which flourished in the 1960s and 70s.
