The MUSIC AND DANCE CIRCLE, a subsidiary of the Open Music Circle, meets in Manhattan at New York Insight Meditation Center, 28 West 27th Street, 10th Fl., usually on the first Saturday of each month. Please RSVP with pre-payment on the Friday before the meetup to let us know if you are coming so we can plan accordingly.

The MUSIC AND DANCE CIRCLE is a gathering place for acoustic improv musicians, vocalists, and dancers of all types, an opportunity for all of us to create together, and evening of adventure and exploration.

After first sitting in silence. we warm up with a short group improv: someone begins, then we each play, vocalize or move as we each feel appropriate, and finally we end in silence. Next we engage in a few musical exercises to test and improve our listening skills. Then we return to a group improv but for an extended period, paying greater attention to the others as we play, vocalize or move. Finally we sit in silence again, and then share experiences. The structure is simple, but its takes us to a deep place.

Throughout dancers and musicians interact with and respond freely to each other; for dancers the experience is often similar to Authentic Movement or Underscore.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
