Dancing from the Inside Out
With Margie Gillis
July 24 - 29, 2020
Move into your body’s experiential wisdom and reveal the soul in motion. Develop your sensitivity to the connection between thought, feeling, spirit and body as you listen in to your body’s inner wisdom, impulses, conversations and emotions. Becoming sensitive to and engaging with this inner life provides information both for expanding well-being, as well as deepening your artistic and creative expression.
Re-awaken the joy of movement using dance exercises, games, imagery and guided movement motifs. Open your soul’s connection to the body and invite it out to breathe and play, to stretch, learn and grow, to articulate the most nuanced of emotions.
All levels are welcome as the program is tailored to the participants in the room. Beginners gain a better understanding of the body while the more experienced acquire a greater knowledge of their own special ways of moving while enhancing the quality of their performance level.
Dancing from the Inside out is a superb program full of joy and inner reflection. Margie is an inspirational instructor who knows how to read the class and guides us along self discovery through dance. – Past participant, 2019
