SUMMER SOLSTICE SACRED DANCE CIRCLE
An Embodied Movement Workshop With Christina
Sister, are you feeling called to move your body in a safe space? Embrace dance as movement medicine! We will join our hearts and synchronize our bodies to feel graceful, beautiful and strong. This 3-part workshop will focus on intentional connection with warm-ups, dance technique & a group choreography inspired by the solstice and will conclude with an outdoor filmed performance to the sun.
The Sun represents the light of all life and consciousness and the Solstice signifies the time when the Earth is at the fullness of her strength, fertility, and abundance. We too can celebrate our strength in gathering together, moving as one and offering gratitude for the abundance that we experience daily.
It is my vision to celebrate midsummer in ceremony with fellow sisters as we harmonize our bodies with intentional movement.

REGISTRATION CLOSES JUNE 6TH!
June 8th & 15th Classes Will Be Held On The North Shore At
MAUI YOGA SHALA
381 Baldwin Ave, Paia, HI 96779
Ceremonial Performance Location TBD.
Each class will begin with a grounding meditation.
WARM UP & TECHNIQUE
We will then warm-up our bodies to prepare for basic dance technique; creating shapes and phrases with our upper & lower body and layering movement.
(Dance fundamentals will be strongly grounded in foundational belly dance technique/movement, as well as classical & contemporary styles. Belly dance experience is wonderful but not required.) Open to all dance levels.
The remainder of class will be used to learn a choreographed dance in celebration of the solstice. Connection to each other, our own bodies and the intention of the solstice will be incorporated in the dance as we create various formations, levels and sequences using a prop. (Props will be handed out for use in class.)
Each class will close with a brief moment of reflection and appreciation.
We will gather in an outdoor location to create an altar, opening ritual and perform the dance amongst ourselves in celebration of the solstice. The intention is for the ceremonial performance to be filmed and shared with the group. Each sister should arrive dressed in white/off-white clothing and should adorn herself in whatever makes her feel beautiful.
