Dear dancers over Sixty-five, Seventy and older, join like minded movers and take a chance to share, explore, play, to continue or pick up again the joy of dance. We know through brain research now about the remarkable effects of meditation. Doing Nothing: Dance of Stillness, brings dance and meditation together as a powerful therapeutic practice.

Doing Nothing: Dance of Stillness is form of dance improvisation mobilizing creative expression and exchange of energy. We practice and learn to move in ways that are authentic and in the process become more aware of how we feel and experience life.

In each session you will be guided from a meditative place with attention to breath, sensation, and emotion and towards authentic expression.  As we learn to listen more deeply to your inner prompts and sensations and gain more insight and awareness the soul and heart opens with delight of being present in the healing wisdom of dance.
