What Happens At A Drop In Class

 

"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique" 

Martha Graham

 

At a class you will be welcomed and guided to move and to dance.

 

Movement Medicine invites each of us to discover our own authentic movement, to trust the movement that arises and to offer this as our dance.  We create a space where we can encourage each other to follow the dance.  

 

There are no steps to learn and the music is varied.  No one has to perform.  No experience of dance is required. Many people are anxious about dancing, and rightly so as dance is a delicate and beautiful thing.  In this practice there is no pressure to be a 'good dancer' or a 'beautiful dancer' but there is an invitation to dance and to find your own way of moving.  This authentic dance whatever it looks like is the most beautiful way to move.  

 

The class is open to adults of all ages and fitness levels.

 

If you have any injuries or pain decide what movement is appropriate and possible for you.  It is up to you to take care of your body and move it in ways that are good for you.

 

Regular Drops start again on 12th Sept 2018. See the Events Page for details.

 

Some Practical Information You May Need

 

When coming to a class it's good to wear comfortable loose clothes and to wear layers.  

 

Comfortable flexible shoes or bare feet are welcome.  Please do not dance in socks.

 

You may also want to bring some water to drink.

 

The class last about 90 minutes to 2 hours.

 

It helps a lot if you arrive on time.  The space will be open15 minutes before the start time and you are welcome to arrive and dance from then.

 

Being quiet and letting go of conversation once you are on the dance floor is great and helps us all to settle and give our attention to the dance.
