Workshops

Small group offerings designed to encourage Stronger Bodies, Peaceful Minds, and Artistic Expression! 

Adult Workshops

Peaceful Body/Mind 

A Dance Lab Original offering

Create a calm, quiet body/mind balance with slow stretches, gentle movements, and a peaceful guided imagery meditation. Using breath and movement, we release stress and tension from our muscles, activate energy flow throughout our lymphatic system, align our posture, and bring a better balance, stability, and harmony to our whole selves. Using peaceful guided imagery, we quiet our minds, focus our thoughts, calm our energy, and relax and refresh our bodies. This workshop provides time and space for self-care, self-reflection, and the opportunity to calm the body and quiet the mind.

Self-Love Journaling 

A Dance Lab Original offering

Design your own Self-Love Journal, decorate the cover, fill with positive affirmations and writing prompts, and add your own creative, artistic flare. Using a variety of art materials, written inspirations, and positive affirmations, we reveal our own unique aesthetic preferences and artistic designs. Bring your mind into focus and calm as we write, color, doodle, design, and explore self in a quiet, peaceful setting. Culminating with a gentle guided-stretch sequence, we release stress and tension from our muscles, activate energy flow throughout our lymphatic system, align our posture, and bring a better balance, stability, and harmony to our whole selves. This workshop provides time and space for self-care, self-reflection, and the opportunity to calm the body and quiet the mind.

Poetry Moves

A Dance Lab Original offering

Create a positive energy flow with a gentle movement warm-up, dance improvisation, and creative writing. Using dance improvisation, we discover individual movement preferences, expand our dance vocabulary, and bring forward a stronger body/mind/spirit connectivity. Using poetry as inspiration, we develop self-expression, creative thinking, and a richer aesthetic presence. This workshop provides time and space for self-discovery, self-reflection, and the opportunity to share self-created artistry.

Dance Flow

A Dance Lab Original offering

 

An innovative Modern dance class incorporating a gentle dance warm-up, a focus on expanding dance elements, authentic explorations, and a calming cool down. Explore new ways of moving through space and connect with your own personal movement preferences. Improvisational structures allow for self-expression, creating unique dance flows. You will leave feeling refreshed and inspired.
