Let your body get caught in the beat
Let yourself be moved, shaken stirred even..
Find your way to our Ecstatic Dance floor, give yourself permission to fully turn up to how it is right now to move this remarkable body of yours.
Dance solo, dance with other, dance with the ocean view,
dance the sun down…how ever it is for you,
this is the place to dance.
We turn up as our Adult self with the resources we have
and we D.A.N.C.E
Let me weave a sound scape for you, in the moment, let me take you on an adventure with yourself, and this group body, hopefully brining you in to land with a deep connection to this land, this body, this environment and settling some of that inner landscape noise as we go thru.
This is not an Open Floor class, this is a free form of movement, self guided, not choreographed. Take the opportunity to really tune into the wisdom of your body, mind, soul, energy and emotion.
Leave your judgements, your phones, your shoes, your korero at the door. Pick up what you need on your way out.
If you wish to dance with another, make sure you have consent, ((Don’t be a dick))
Door are OPEN from 715pm > a warm up set for you to stretch, land in the space, find your ease, be with what is there for you.
730 we start
740ish > karakia, welcome >>>
> guided meditation, self reflection.
930pm closing
