An improvisatory based class, using imagery and cues we will attempt to cancel binaries and limitations that we have inherited, even if just for an hour and a half.
We will work to enjoy getting out of our own way and welcome endless possibilities.
This class is PLAYTIME and to engage in the cathardic experience of JOY with each other and through movement.
Hope to see you there! xoxo
