Dance phrases, duet, group and magic circle improv – a fun, lively, mindful 2 hours adding another layer of body awareness.

Friday June 19 Class led by Bernadette Divilly in contact improv, exploring grace as a state of being in action with ease, finding the small dance standing and allowing the dance of deeper connection unfold in relationship.  Explore deep play through simple connections.
