COMING UP: FREE MINDFUL DANCE AND CONTEMPORARY IMPROVISATION 

ONLINE SESSIONS

We approach each class with a philosophy of being kind to the body, kind to the mind, curious about the present moment, and exploring of the potential within movement, whatever potential/possibility exists in the bodymind each day. Each class is self-paced, so you can adjust it to your needs for that day. Contemporary Improvisation classes are geared more towards folks with dance experience. However, each class you can make as physically gentle or intense as you wish. We use guided imagery, metaphor, and mindfulness tools in each class.
