Susan’s Playlists June 22-25, 2015 ~ Choosing Sides

choosing sides meanwhile I keep dancingThis week we continued to explore the Elegant Stumbling routine and we dove deep into the focus of the side body. As always, I’d love to hear about how it feels both during and after class!

Below are all the playlists for the week and you can also find them on Spotify here you can listen to all the music for free! Follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen! No matter where you are, we can listen and dance together! Note that if you are using the Spotify app for mobile devices, the program inserts “recommended” music that is not on my original playlist. Also, Spotify doesn’t have all the music I have, so sometimes I’ll put up a different version of a song or skip it all together. Have fun with it.

A couple of things you might be like to know about:

• In an unexpected turn of events, I will be teaching tomorrow, Friday, June 26 at 9am at acac downtown, Studio A. Another chance to do some Elegant Stumbling!

Special Summer Nia (and AfroCardio and Belly Dance) Jam tomorrow, Friday, June 26, 545-7pm, acac downtown, Group Ex Studio. A triple header of three gifted teachers offering a taste of three different styles of movement: Nia, AfroCardio, and Belly Dance! Join us for three scoops of dancing! Free to members and non-members!

New Blog ~ A Thousand Beautiful Things ~ I’m going to be traveling for about half the summer, so I’ve set up a separate blog for photographs (phone camera only!), words, and essays about gratitude, beauty, mindfulness and whatever I discover on my adventures! Please join me there!

SAVE THE DATE: DANCE. SIT. WRITE. DAY SHOP HAPPENS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2015 ~ Mark your calendar for the next opportunity to spend the day playing in the intersection of movement, meditation and creativity! More details to come this summer (you can follow along at https://www.facebook.com/events/443642725810963/ ) Let me know if you have questions (sjmnia@gmail.com)

As always, please let me know if you have questions or how I can help more.

Dance on. Shine on.
