A three-part workshop series using movement to explore relationship building. Come connect to your body and creative life force, while building community with others. No previous dance experience expected. All levels of movers welcome! We ask participants to commit to all three dates!
Workshop 1: Being in relationship with the self- March 21, 2023 | 5:30 pm -7:00 pm
This class will focus on exploring how you like to express yourself through movement. The warm-up and movement prompts will be geared toward internal reflection, so that you can dance, roll on the floor, jump, shake, or move however you’re called to move without judgement.
Workshop 2: Being in relationship to others- March 28, 2023 | 5:30 pm -7:00 pm
Movement is a form of communication, and so this class will focus on a warm-up and prompts that allow you to share, listen, and connect to another individual.
Workshop 3: Being in community – April 4, 2023 | 5:30 pm -7:00 pm
Humans are social beings, which is why dance exists as cultural practices and in a community context. This class will be geared toward connecting to our full group, supporting each other’s creative expression unconditionally, and having fun together!

15-minute warm up
45- minutes of guided movement exploration
