Free-style Dancing for inner peace

Harmony Family Yoga

$20.00

*Please arrive on time to receive the full benefit of this grief support class.* This meetup is approximately 1.5 hours long, with about 1 hour of music. *You might want to sit on the floor or lie down; if you need a towel for this, please bring your own.*

This is freestyle expressive dancing, so I am not going to be leading you on how to dance. I might give suggestions on what you can do either verbally or by dancing. You are welcome to follow my suggestions, just as much as you are welcome to follow what your heart tells you to do. Perhaps you will feel guided to move very slowly, or very erratically, or sit on the side and just tap your fingers and foot to the music, or even just breathe and do stretches to the music. Let’s just relax and dance like nobody is watching.

I am not a dancer. Would this work for me?
Yes. You don’t need to be a dancer to do this expressive, free-style dancing. Dancing does not always involve trying to force your body to move according to someone else’s rhythm. In freestyle dancing, you move to your own rhythm, whether it is just tapping our feet or shaking our whole body while twirling in a circle. In expressive dancing, you follow our mind and heart, to get in touch and release your deepest feelings and emotions.

What is the cost of this dance?
$20, payable in cash or credit card at class time. If $20 is not feasible for you, please contact the organizer for a sliding scale fee.

What should I wear?
I recommend clothing that allows you to move freely. You may dance bare feet or wear socks, comfortable walking or dancing shoes, or light sneakers with flexible soles.
Please bring your own towel if you need it to sit or lie down on the floor. If you like having a scarf to dance with, please bring that too.
