  • Wear comfortable street-dancing shoes/clothes. Don’t wear sunglasses.

How the Session Works
The first 30 minutes is introduction to the project, instructions, and warm-up. The next 30-60 minutes is dancing in public space with cool-down. The final 30 minutes is discussion and learning from one another. Like yoga, the practice is the individual’s and what he or she brings to it. At all times the individual controls the practice.

More about Don't you feel it too?
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. Practiced since 2008, it is an aspiring spiritual technology based in “do-it-yourself” public performance.
