"Don't you feel it too?" Winter Sessions

Free Sessions in Dance and Inner-Life Exploration

What: Freeing the spirit through dancing our inner lives. A developing spiritual practice and form of public art called Don't you feel it too? This is the winter/indoor version of the summer/outdoor practice.

For anyone, any age, expecially daring inner-life explorers--artists and non-artists, yoga practitioners, meditators, other spiritualists, etc.

How to Prepare:
  • Bring a pocket music player, head/earphones, and your most beloved music on a playlist (3-7 songs is good). If you don't have a music player, we'll lend you one.
  • Wear comfortable dancing shoes and clothes.
  • More instructions will be given before we dance.
  • Free. Just show up. Send questions:
Like yoga, the practice is the individual's and what he or she brings to it. This is not a dance technique or choreography class in the traditional sense. Observing is welcome; participating is more welcome.

Don’t you feel it too? is experimental public art and a new mind-body practice of liberating the spirit through dancing your inner life in public places. It is purposeful self-embarrassment, dancing where dancing does not usually belong. Don’t you feel it too? uses the body to create unexpected joy, for performers and witnesses, kindly challenging our standardized public lives. It is an aspiring spiritual technology based in “do-it-yourself” public performance.
