What we're about

Are you taking yourself too seriously?
Ready to remember what it feels like to play?
Willing to celebrate as a full participant in your life?
Being Danced is a vehicle for embodying presence and playfulness and a unique conscious dance experience with an artistic slant.
We work as an ensemble in silly and theatrical ways to co-create an alive response to our togetherness. You will be delighted with Improv games and scores that challenge your habitual patterns of movement, activate group mind and breed spontaneity. From this connected platform, with amazing music to lift your spirit, we create a living breathing work of art.

Being Danced. An experiment in Communal Play. Join us!

"True play is revolutionary. While tradition conserves and preserves, play turns over a new leaf, turns things upside down, stands things on their heads. We’re urged to play around and not follow the rules, to take risks, to be spontaneous (child’s play), open-ended (free play), experimental (play by ear), inventive. Play is accessible to everyone." ~from James Carse's :'Finite and Infinite Games' ~Being Danced is a vehicle for embodying presence and playfulness! ~Community Play provides a safe place for your inner child and a basic map for getting out of your head and into the freedom that creative expression and spontaneity can provide. We work as an ensemble in silly and theatrical ways to co-create an alive response to our togetherness. Participants will be guided through simple scores, and games that create connection, promote positivity and develop awareness training. This class will be lead by Being Danced Apprentices! Gifts you will receive from this class: To participate with life in a more authentic way. To trust your instincts and intuition. To find intelligence in improvisation. This class welcomes all bodies, all genders, and all ages. (please bring your kids!) No dance experience is needed. ** Please Arrive on time...at 10am.... Wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to have a good time. Sliding scale $15-$30
