Even though it wasn’t *the* most wintry week on record, it was a helpful practice to melt all our icy parts — body, mind and heart. Thanks for all who danced with us in person and remotely!

The Ice to Water to Steam playlists from the week are below or you can listen to them by going to Spotify! Dance for free at Spotify! Sign up, follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen!

And first the announce-y things:

• New Nia 5 Stages class with Anne at acac downtown on Friday mornings
Black Belt Nia Instructor, Anne Wolf is now offering a Nia 5 Stages class on Friday mornings 8:30-8:55 am at ACAC downtown. Nia 5 Stages is an integrative practice based on the five stages of human development: Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing and Walking. Each stage is a foundation for the next. Combined, all 5 stages help people to integrate physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. When practiced daily and in the correct sequence, these stages facilitate optimal alignment and function. Come join Anne to explore these stages and cultivate your  practice.

• FREE Workshop: Finding Your Focus with Mary Linn & Susan ~ January 28, 3-5pm
These days, there are seemingly endless worthy causes that could use our money, time, and energy. Many of us are left feeling overwhelmed, scattered, or even helpless.
In this free workshop, we will explore what matters to you most, ultimately discovering the unique purpose to which each one of us may give our devotion.
As we share our insights, we will create a sense of relaxed readiness, knowing that we are not taking on the world alone.
Bring a journal, something you’re comfortable sitting on and a friend!

  1. Susan, Spotify seems to require you to be a member of Facebook, which I’m NOT. Is that right, or is there some other way to follow your music? Thanks! Anne H.
