Hi
Join Us Now
So what is it to Deepen in our dance?
This group is about allowance, giving ourselves the time and space for our own individual movement to flower and form. With enough guidance and movement inquiries to support this journey. The focus of this second group is finding the support our senses and moving from them, dropping tension and discovering simplicity.
As a way to explore our moving selves we will work with Experiential Anatomy, Developmental Patterns or Movement Principles.
This class is for everyone who loves to move. Whether you are a dancer on paper or a dancer in your heart this is a class for you.
Come and be a dancer in your body!!!
