RHYTHMWOOD GROOVE – A Conscious Free Style Dance Evening – Lion’s Head, ON
Last Friday of the month 7:30 – 9:30 pm . Date may shift so please check http://www.Rhythmwood.ca
This evening of free style dance, also known as ecstatic dance, is very lightly facilitated. There is an opening circle to share the evening’s invitation but there is no choreography, and no steps or patterns are taught. Each person is encouraged to move freely in their own way, inspired by the music and their own inner spirit. This practice is about coming together in community to dance and express freely without judgment or concern. We do not speak for the duration of the dance session and the reason for this is so that we can be fully present in our bodies. In this way the dance becomes a moving meditation for all involved. Let go and let your body be your guide!
Cost: sliding scale $8 – $13.
