Nurturing Self through Flowing 

Sat. October 14, 2023  

1pm - 7:30pm

The nurturing Rhythm of  Flowing can assist us in boosting energy levels, allowing us to dance into life with an increased sense of vitality. Movements in Flowing are smooth and continuous;  increasing flexibility, grounding and balance in our bodies, life and relationships.  The gentle yet fluid movements in this Rhythm can help release tension and stress, leaving us in a more relaxed state of being. Focusing on the sensations of our bodies we increase awareness of our body's signals and needs so we can lovingly fill our buckets.

Mental Clarity through Chaos

Sat. February 10, 2024

1pm - 7:30pm


Chaos is a gateway where the focus on bodily sensations and rhythm allows the mind to quiet down. This can lead to increased mental clarity and a break from everyday mental chatter. When we move faster than our mind a shift occurs, the thoughts dissolve and we become the eye of the storm, grounded, centered and present regardless of what is occurring around us in the moment. We allow the Rhythm of Chaos to rejuvenate and revive us rather than depleting our energy forces. Shaking out stress, negative thoughts, old stories we no longer need, judgements that hinder our well being. 


 Energizing through Staccato

Sat. December 9, 2023 

1pm - 7:30pm


How’s your pie chart of life experiences? Your inner portfolio. Is it full of activities, people, experiences that energize and fulfill you? Is it heavy on responsibilities that leave you drained, with little energy to add fulfilling experiences? We dance into exploring boundaries, embodying our yes breath, activating our no with clarity so we can meet our everyday experiences with balance. Taking this into the larger field of our relationships with Self, Other, Family, Community.

Inner Peace through Stillness

Sat. May 18, 2024 

1pm - 7:30pm


Slowing down, connecting with spirit and breath, can lead to a sense of inner peace and contentment. It's a reminder that peace and stillness are always accessible within us, even amid the chaos of life. Stillness serves as a vital component for balancing our overall energy. Knowing when to slow down. If a race-car tries to go 100% around the curves, it’s going to crash. We too crash in different ways when we continue to push ourselves. Slowing down leads to a deeper understanding of oneself and a greater capacity for presence, self-acceptance, and inner peace while keeping our awareness of what's essential and needed.


Creative Expression through Lyrical 

Sat. April 13, 2024

1pm - 7:30pm


Lyrical is a wellspring of creativity and inspiration. It allows space for ideas and insights to surface, and it can be particularly valuable for artists, musicians, writers, and anyone seeking creative breakthroughs. Lyrical can provide a much-needed break from the seriousness of everyday life, inviting dancers to experience childlike wonder and spontaneity. We listen to our body's intuitive impulses, sharpening our ability to trust our inner wisdom and cultivate spontaneity.
