Is back for autumn.... 

Dancing Free is a fun and releasing embodied movement session - incorporating guided improvisation, storytelling, and meditative relaxation.

Join Emilie for a six week course. These sessions are verbally guided throughout - they always begin with a meditative relaxation; as we enter the parasympathetic nervous system, we blend seamlessly into movement utilising, imaginative stimuli, movement play, and embodiment practices. We will take an imaginative journey into dance and movement, exploring the sense of self, whilst allowing ourselves to unleash the natural dance that lies within us. We enjoy a final cathartic and heartfelt dance before finishing with a short relaxation.

You do not need any experience of dance or meditation to be able to take part. Dancing Free classes are suitable for anyone who enjoys movement for the joy of moving.

Session: Saturday 24 Sept - 29 Oct 9.30am - 11am
Ticket: £36 for 6 weeks or £6 per session

Tutor: Emilie Barton
