Stacy Dawson Stearns curates this season of mojo training for Monday Morning Class at Pieter. These classes are offered with the intention of deepening and complicating the dance, movement, and artistic practices of the participants. Los Angeles takes things to a different level and dance is never just dance. Poetry is never just poetry. Pipes are never pipes. Induce your bodymind to go to the MOJO and get thee to class!

Classes are $15-20 sliding scale, OR you can take advantage of our 12 class pack for $120 and 6 class pack for $70 by paypaling (friends&family) and writing “MMCmojo2018 12 pack or MMCmojo2018 6 pack” in the comment line. Class packs only apply to MMC Mojo Technique classes.

May 7, 14 // Jennie MaryTai Liu // PERFORMORDEAL

week 1. pretend
week 2. real

In this class Jennie will share and troubleshoot some of the problems she is currently working through as a person: believing, knowing, the body as shell and creature inside shell simultaneously, the ordeal of transformation, witchery of form. She will heat you up, drag you down; there will be drama, detailed counting, ancestral-vibing, hopefully sweat.
