Embrace your Body – Connecting through Movement Workshop (adults) | IN PERSON
July 9 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
This movement workshop invites us to connect with our inner selves and the world around us. On Saturday, July 9, from 10:30 – 12:30 pm, Mexican dancer Carla Alcántara will guide us in awakening our senses from the inside out, warming up our bodies, and welcoming an environment for self-discovery. Get ready to explore playful exercises that support our human connection.
We’ll be using rhythm as an essential part of our investigation and our relationship with the space while discovering endless possibilities of expression within our bodies. This workshop will offer self-reflection, discovery, and an inspiring human connection experience.
This workshop is open to all levels of abilities, and no previous experience is necessary.
