Open Movement Classes
October 29, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 2:00pm on day Last of the month, repeating until December 31, 2016
Newburgh Open Movement is back for a Fall series at the beautiful Safe Harbors Lobby at the Ritz!
Join us on the last Saturday of the month from October to December (10/29, 11/26, 12/31) as we co-create time and space for people of all walks of life to come together and enjoy three hours of playful dancing and mindful movement.
The first hour of the event is a guided warm-up and dance improvisation workshop led by Ophra Wolf of Force & Flow, followed by free and open jamming (i.e. time for you to move or observe as you please) starting at 3 PM and featuring live musical accompaniment.
Kids of all ages are welcome to the jam portion with adult supervision, the workshop at the start is suitable for adults and teenagers.
Dance improvisation is about moving from the inside, in a way that feels good and organic to your body, and a dance jam is a setting in which everyone is an equal part of co-creating the dance of the room.
You can come dance your heart out, and you can also just come to stretch quietly and enjoy the energy and focus of a room full of moving bodies. You can dance alone and you can dance with others, even your stillness is part of the dance that we’ll be co-creating.
It’s about tuning in – to your own body, to the space around you, and to the people you’re sharing it with.
The only requirement is willingness to look, listen and contribute your awareness – because it’s your awareness that’s making it all come to life.
Your donation helps to keep it going!
