Notes About This Event
FreeDance is one of the underlying foundations for exploring the body and self through Nia; so much so that it is the name and focus of the Nia White Belt Principle 4. It is the "freedom" compliment to the "form" of Nia's 52 Moves, which blends martial arts, dance arts and healing arts into one self-expressive movement form. The practice has eight unique stages. When combined, these stages stimulate movement creativity, a sense of vitality and renewal, self-healing and well-being. The best part is: anyone can learn to FreeDance – all you need is music and your body!
In the first hour of this workshop, you will listen to the music of Butterfly and explore the eight stages of FreeDance through art, by drawing with pens and paper. In the second hour, you will move to the routine Butterfly with a new set of wings, enjoying a richer world of sounds, textures, sensations and expressive movement choices, taking FreeDance to the next level of freedom!
If you are looking for inspiration, or need a boost of creativity, this workshop is for you! You don't need to be a student of Nia to join this powerful workshop, as it's open to everyBody.
