Spring Dance with Bodie & Jane - 17th March 2024
A day of conscious dance blending the teachings of Open Floor, 5Rhythms & Freedom Dance, lightly held by two quite different teachers.
A space to reconnect to your body, to your breath, to others & to open to the magic of the dance.
Jane will be inviting you to lean in to the shapes and textures of the music & your own body's wisdom to inspire & guide you.
What happens if you simply get out of the way & let what wants to happen, happen through you?
Bodie will be offering gateways in to the dance, a touchpoint, an anchor for you to explore & return to as you move.
Does anything change if you incorporate these gentle teachings in to your dance?
We hope that our different styles will prove to be a rich mix for you to play with & enquire on the dance floor.
Ann Shuptrine, an experienced Open Floor teacher will be assisting us & Marike will crew.

I trained to teach 5Rhythms in 2001 with Gabrielle Roth & her team (Kathy Altman, Lori Saltzman & Andrea Juhan) & have run classes & workshops in the UK, Europe & further afield.
Since 2016 I have also been an Open Floor teacher & co-created the Mentoring programme. I teach & Mentor for OF & I am currently assisting & mentoring on the European teacher training.
Meditation has been important to me since 1993 & I trained to teach mindfulness with Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield & their guest teachers.
