Victory Dance Thru Movement and Music with Bibi McGill
Early civilizations danced as a method of healing and creative expression, but over time we have been conditioned to shut down or detach from our feelings. Our modern day culture persuades us to dance in a way that is “cool” or “hip,” rather than free and uninhibited.
Come experience a victory dance—movement that radiates liberation, rather than self-consciousness. Similar to the flow of a yoga class, we will gradually rise into an ecstatic state before gently winding down to savasana’s state of rest and rejuvenation. While being aware and respectful of those we hold space with, we’ll practice freedom, expression, prayer, and thankfulness within an uninhibited container of sacred celebration. Honor the elements and our ancestors. Set a personal intention. Opening Circle and 22 minutes of breath and movement are followed with a web of ambient, hypnotic, world, mantra, electronic, glitch hop, dance beats that facilitate the exploration of higher levels of consciousness.
