Location: Bright Star World Dance (Portland)
Cost: $5-$20 sliding scale/per session
Take a break from the holiday hustle and bustle to give yourself a gift with an hour of meditative, embodied movement.
Rooted in authentic movement and contemplative dance, each one hour session begins with a guided movement meditation, and is followed by a 20 minute free form movement period to live drumming. Time for journaling or other creative forming will follow.
Post session exercises that will help students build an embodiment practice at home will also be offered.
No dance experience is required. The sessions are open to students of all movement backgrounds. You will want to wear comfortable clothing that allows for freedom of movement. You may also want to bring a notebook, drawing materials and a water bottle.
Cost is a sliding scale of $5.00 - $20.00 payable by cash, check or credit/debit. If you prefer to pay in advance you may do so below.

What is embodiment?
Sometimes called physical mindfulness, embodiment can create a greater awareness of how your mental and emotional state impact your body and bring a greater sense of presence to your daily movement through life. For movement artists it can bring a new layer of physical expression to our dance and music, and increase our ability to bodily manifest a thought or idea.
In order to facilitate free exploration, we seek to create a safe space for all types of dancers and movement artists to explore creative expression. The class is open to all genders and movement forms.
