Citing Peruvian dances from the African diaspora, this class invites movers to engage with their creative selves, moving to polyrhythmic music. These ancestral dances have the potential to source memory, feeling and sensation. Take this time to feel into your body, perhaps try-on a new dance language, be in community, and find your fun through your movement, your medicine.
