Open Floor Embodied Movement Meditation/Conscious Dance
All music, dance on Sundays for 2 hours!
We meet to dance deeply into a soulful connection to ourselves, others and community. Following our own bodies and Open Floor core movement resources, we enter a meditative journey of dance, using all styles of music from around the world.
Open Floor Movement Practice is a lively, sweaty, full-on dance inquiry:
- How can we move and include it all – feelings, other people, thoughts, wild passions, limitations?
- Can we use movement to soften the tight spots in our tender hearts and stretch our capacity for relationship?
- What happens if we turn old repetitive thoughts into choreography for creative dances?
No experience is needed. Join us at these regular community dances on Sunday mornings in beautiful West Hall, in the Oddfellows Building.
"In Open Floor, we teach love and everything that gets in the way of love." Lori Saltzman, Open Floor Founder
"Aside from her incredible abilities as a teacher, Christine has exquisite taste in music! Her musical collection reflects her ability to reach a wide range of different levels of being - playful, powerful, comical, and out-of-this-world inspired, to name a few. Don't miss these amazing Sunday dances!" -J. Payne
