This series of online classes provide an opportunity to slow down, fill our lungs with precious air, energise our bodies and stay connected in these times of self isolation.
Sessions follow a holistic approach using principles drawn from the African Diaspora beginning with work on the alignment of the spine supported by breath to relieve tension and connect to our roots.
This follows work on dance technique, movement exploration and improvisation, allowing emotion to be expressed through our physicality.
No previous dance experience required.
- Suitable for ages 18 plus

- Bring some water!
- Prepare a comfortable space to move
