This class can be done at your own level of comfort, Professional or non-professional. A health focused format that provides an opportunity for participants to be introduced to Margie’s approach of Dancing From the Inside Out. The learning process is playful and stimulating! Emphasis is on observing the natural kinetic process. How our “inner landscape” becomes expressed into muscle and movement.
Moving Meditation with DENISE FUJIWARA
Tuesday November 1 from 11am - 12pm ONLINE
If you would like to experience the benefits of meditation, but you’ve done enough sitting (in front of a screen) and you’d prefer to stretch out and move, this might be something for you. In these sessions we develop a mindful movement practice that facilitates awareness, embodied presence, agility and creativity.

Crazy Smooth's workshops are immersive activities during which he shares his knowledge, skills, and passion with participants. The power of dance enchants, and provides participants with an opportunity to express themselves in new ways. The workshop will feature various street dance styles, adapted for beginner levels and useful for advanced levels, too.
Connections with BARBARA KANERATONNI DIABO
Thursday November 3 from 11:00am - 12:00pm ONLINE
Barbara has learned, through her Kanien'keha:ka culture, the Ohen:ton Karihwatehkwen, which translated to "the words before all". Often referred to as the Thanksgiving Address, they often will say this at the start of their day as well as events. It is a way to acknowledge and pay respect to all our relations with nature. What does this personally mean to you? Through dance, we can explore this together.
Mindful Motion with CAROL ANDERSON
Friday November 4 from 11:00am - 12:00pm ONLINE
Gentle, flowing movement patterns integrate breath, motion and intention to promote overall physical awareness, fully articulate the spine, and contribute to supporting the many health benefits of dynamic alignment. While adaptable for all, Mindful Motion is designed for older movers, enhancing mobility and the joy of moving with presence and flow. Workshop participants will need a stool, piano bench, or flat-bottomed armless chair.
