It enhances the joy of triumph, consoles and contributes to recovery during times of sadness and loss. In this workshop, we’ll use dance to awaken our bodies and spirits and help us feel more part of the community of fellow humans. Dancing to Afro-Caribbean music, we’ll explore free, unscripted movements that will get your heart beating, attune you to the joyful dancer within, and liberate you from inhibitions that you may have carried since childhood. Whether you’re convinced you can’t dance and have two left feet or are an experienced performer, you’ll leave feeling revitalized, exhilarated, and euphoric.
