Come out and dance with us on the Winter Solstice!
What it is: Solstice Dance and Potluck: An Exploration of Conscious Dance/Ecstatic Dance. Facilitation by Stefini Adkins, Music mixed by DJ Hank.
Where: The Seward Community Library and Museum, downstairs meeting room.
When: Winter Solstice, December 21st, from 6-9pm.
Why: Conscious Dance is a free-form movement celebration of the experience of being in our bodies. It is a gateway to sacred play, a movement meditation, a dance-how-you-want space that makes you feel good in your skin. It’s a community event, a great way to celebrate the solstice as we turn our attention toward spring, and an excellent reason to get out of the house.
But what is conscious dance really?
To really understand it, you have to do it. Conscious Dance is free-form dance in combination with guided movement, with no pressure to perform. It’s meditation with a beat.
Why should I do it?
Do it for all the physical benefits of exercise, or for the opportunity to spend solstice evening in community. Do it to welcome the daylight back as we move toward spring. Do it for fun!
But I can’t dance!
That’s okay! You don’t have to be a dancer to enjoy Conscious Dance. It’s about movement without judgement, with good music.
What should I wear?
You can wear anything you like, but I suggest loose, comfortable clothes of the kind that you might wear for yoga. Layers are always good, in case you get hot and want to take something off, or cold and want to put something on. No shoes are allowed on the dance floor, but socks are okay.
What should I bring?
A potluck will follow the dance, so bring something to share if you can.
What will I need to pay?
The dance is free to the public, although donations will be accepted at the door. Suggestion donation is $5 per dancer, and all donations will go toward covering costs of the this dance, and funding the next one.
Is there anything else I need to know?
Just one thing: Conscious Dance is an intentionally sober event, so please don’t come under the influence of alcohol.
