Weekly online meeting that starts slow and seated, then gets up and flows into movement. Citing dances that were re-interpreted during the Afro-Peruvian cultural revival of the second half of the 20th century, this class invites movers to engage with their creative selves, moving to polyrhythmic music. Our ancestral dances have the potential to source feeling and sensation to the point of overriding society's imposed logics. Take this time to feel into your body, "stop thinking" and make a personal intention to liberate yourself, as you want, through your movement, your medicine.
