Class will begin with a guided meditation then move into led movement tasks through improvisational prompts and dance scores using text and imagery. Through this research, we will cultivate mindfulness, loving-kindness, explore our physicality, inspire creativity and freedom of movement.

There are no words to match the magnitude of unrest and fury that lives in our hearts throughout history. I am open to being humbled by my ignorance, listening when necessary, and taking action where is needed. Thank you to those that have been sharing tools for us to expand our awareness and love for one another.
