danceology – open improvisation for 12+

Reap the gifts of moving creatively: breathe, stretch, contract, release, sway, jump, express, sweat, relate, heal, envision, play. No technique or dogma, just plenty of time and space to dance freely and discover. Bring an intention and we will provide a diverse soundscape, a somatic warm-up and light facilitation to muse your moves. Open to every body—no dance experience is necessary.

Vaccinated individuals only, please, so that those who would like to can dance without masks as per the City of Philadelphia’s COVID regulations.

10:45-11:45am open moves with music
