We gather every Tuesday night in downtown Bellingham for an inviting community event of free-form movement!
Ages 18 and up. All bodies, abilities and diverse experiences welcome. Leave shoes & conversation at the door. Move however you wish!
Conscious Free-form Dance is free-form movement to great music; movement that feels right in the moment rather than dancing to ‘look good’; dancing like you might in your living room alone but with other people doing the same; a mood-boosting cardio workout. It relieves stress, and it’s meditative. It's dancing from the inside out. (Here's a very good, short video if you're new to conscious dance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5st-JANR7x0)
Much healing can happen when we listen to the wisdom of our bodies and allow those stuck places in us to loosen and let go and move through us and out. Absolutely no experience in dance needed. Many first time dancers report finding a new sense of freedom or movement in this safe and accepting dance environment. Wear comfy clothes, bring a water bottle and a hand towel if you tend to sweat a lot when you dance hard.
Free. Love Donations gratefully accepted at the door as you might feel inspired. (But it truly is free!)
Drop-ins welcome, as space permits.
Doors open after about 7:15 for warmup.
Dance facilitated by Moraya Morningstar
