WANT TO PLAY, DANCE OR VOCALIZE THIS SATURDAY JUNE 15, 6:30-8:30PM?
All acoustic musicians, vocalists, and dancers are welcome at the Music and Dance Circle, www.meetup.com/musicanddancecircle. We’ve been meeting since 2005 at the New York Insight Meditation Center, 28 West 27th Street, 10th fl., buzzer #27.
We have no musical or other agenda and no director. Each gathering is an exploration and an adventure. We start in silence, someone begins, then paying attention to each other, we each play, vocalize or move as we each feel appropriate, and finally we end with silence. Dancers and musicians interact with and respond freely to each other. The structure is simple, but its takes us to a deep place. It is somewhat similar to Authentic Movement. Now and then we may try exercises to improve our skills.
Some participants have discovered useful things about themselves or their playing, singing, or dancing whereas others have found their experience to be similar to those had in a therapeutic or a spiritual practice. It's always a great opportunity to give your right brain free reign. Most anything can happen. We usually have fun, and occasionally something miraculous occurs.
Please be on time as we may not be able to hear the buzzer if you arrive late. A $15 contribution is required when you RSVP; the monies collected help to pay for, rent, replace old or add new instruments, and pay for promotion.
