New Seasonal Events:
Ecstatic Dance – Off -Site!
At Kern Park- east end, (down the hill, toward the river)
Every Sunday!, 11:00 am-12:30 pm
Come enjoy music and your body. Dance with nature and others! We meet at Kern Park in Riverwest Sunday’s from 11:00 to 12:30. If you go to the playground, just follow the path east and down a little hill, toward the river. We will be near the tennis court. The music is eclectic and different each week.
We will dance even if it is cold but will cancel in the morning of the event it is raining. Dress in warm layers that you can peel off for comfort and consider that the grass maybe wet. You may want to bring a yoga mat or blanket etc for any stretching or movement on the ground.
This event is open to all but we appreciate donations to help support creating it and helping the Pink House Studio continue our mission of spreading the Social Healing Arts. Suggested donation is $10 There will be a basket there for cash or Paypal Pinkhousestudios.email@example.com
Guidelines for our dances:
These guidelines help us all create and experience a safe, sacred, and respectful space:
To help us focus on our bodies and experience this is Non-verbal practice.
Please restrict conversations to before or after the dance or move away from dance area to socialize while dance is going on. However feel free to make sounds, whoop, sing or release however you feel it!
We practice acceptance of what is: dropping judgments and expectations of ourselves and others.
Present and authentic
Emotions: Frustration, discomfort, grief, boredom, etc. All of it is welcome.
Dance does NOT have to be “ecstatic” and does not have to look like “dance.” Tears welcome, joy welcome.
Movement can be subtle, internal, or bigger, outward. Let your body show you how it wants to move. Copy, trying new things. We practice respect for our own and others’ comfort levels, AND we practice expanding our boundaries and trying new things.
At around 11:10 we will have a brief hello circle and then again before we end around 12:20 we will have a short goodby check in.
As of now we ask dancers to either wear a mask or keep a social distance of at least 10 feet. There is plenty of room to spread out and have your own space. With this in mind we can still see, acknowledge and dance with each other as we desire.
All Song Circles on hold in waiting for warmer weather! Then we will do them Off-site, Outside.
Connection Dance w/Grace D’Amore
ON HOLD. Look to instructor page for Grace D’Amore, for contact info.
Whether you have never danced and say you have “two left feet” or you are an experienced Social Dancer of 25 years, this class is for you. If your heart beats you have a rhythm.
You will learn what is possible in Dance: hands, feet, dancer preference, lead, follow. We are an absolutely inclusive space, so no hate will be tolerated. You will feel more confident and connected leaving this class.
The goal of the class is to teach connection, improvisation improvement and create an atmosphere of inclusion.
Cost is $5 for the space. I want EVERYONE to be able to learn how to dance. But hey, more is up to you, and I deeply appreciate when you appreciate me and Pink House. I take tips and I believe in thriving communities.
