Find Your Inner Dance | Momo Movement (Online).
> Monday Jun 1, 2020 at 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Close your eyes…. take a deep breath in and out…. Now bring your attention to the sensation in your body - wherever you are - and begin to move in any way, literally anyway, that feels satisfying or interesting. This is the premise of Momo Movement’s workshop, Find Your Inner Dance.
Artistic Director, Kyra Newton, will verbally guide you through the 60-minute exploration, providing you with cues to attune yourself to different parts of your physical body, your emotions, and ultimately what you need to feel present and in your body.
Find Your Inner Dance, is accessible to people with and without disabilities, all genders, races, and experience levels.
Together, we will tune into how we are feeling and what we need from moment to moment, moving from a place of authentic self-exploration. Let’s be together and move!
