Weekly Open Floor Classes with Jenny Macke
Open Floor Community Dance: Sundays 10:30am-noon
We gather on Sunday mornings to practice Open Floor, a conscious dance practice, which offers tools for authentic connection to self, other, community and spirit. We dance. We release stresses from our week and create space for ourselves and others. A wide variety of music is played to move different kinds of energy through our bodies, minds, hearts and souls. We do it alone and together. No prior experience is necessary. Just a body willing to move and mind open to let go of things that might be fixed, in order to find more fluidity in our dances and life. This is a well held space but without a lot of instruction. For more teaching of the Open Floor practice we recommend Thursday night, an ongoing group or a workshop.
$12 drop-in; $60 for a 5-class card (can be used for Thursday Deep Practice classes). Classes continue regularly throughout the year.

Jenny will be teaching all classes through September and Kelsey will return to alternate teaching in October. Please be aware that we are considering doing an Ongoing Group on Thursday nights later in the Fall. If you want this drop-in class on Thursdays, now is the time to come!
In general, this class is devoted to putting the motion of the Open Floor practice into learning and healing space. We dance deeply together, usually a long warm-up, with a a teaching in the middle and a Movement Cycle following to practice what has been offered. Open Floor is a treasure trove of embodiment resources and tools. We work with consciousness practices and integrate them into movement. As we dance, we give ourselves the opportunity to shed light on what is moving through us and how we might enable ourselves to have more space to release or ground or practice opening new pathways of awareness. We practice this on the dance floor so that we might also take it into our everyday lives.
