About the workshop:

Dancing in social settings can a fun yet, challenging experience. In the prospect of dancing at a party have you ever thought, “I don’t know how to dance. Why are they pushing me to go out there? I can’t possibly dance with all of those people. What would I do? I would look ridiculous.” If so, this workshop is definitely for you! The fear of moving only exists in the mind but it can be overcome if one builds self-confidence, focus and intention, and a hefty movement toolkit that provides variety and clarity to your movement on the dance floor. We will engage in various exercises and activities that get to the root of your fear and bring out the amazing dancer in all of us. Take a HUGE deep breath and join us as we dive into the world of social dancing.

In the workshop, we will:

  • Engage in various movement activities and exercises that focus on body awareness and placement.
  • Explore tips and tools you can use when you go out dancing in social settings like parties and work or family events.
  • Build self-confidence, focus and intention.
  • Build an extensive movement toolkit that provides variety and clarity to your movement on the dance floor.
  • Get to the root of fear in movement and bring out the amazing dancer in all of us.
