WHAT IS DANCE AWAKE?

dance awake / conscious dance / mindful movement / moving meditation
Dance Awake is a conscious dance practice of exploring all the dimensions of one’s own being. Through movement we access our own inner wisdom. It is a practice that supports physical, mental, and emotional well being. Each practice is supported by a wave of great music, simple guidelines and open-ended facilitation.
