Music & Other Gems Jul 31 – Aug 3, 2017 – DragonFish

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week, we played with the energetic balance of yang and yin, fire and water, fierce and soft by dancing DragonFish: my version of Britta von Tagen’s routine Dragon. We’ll come back to it when I return from my adventures!

As I get ready to take a break from summer in the South, I’m deeply aware of how extraordinarily lucky I am. And not the least of my good fortunes is the opportunity I have to teach and dance and be with our community of movers both in Charlottesville and beyond. And for that I am so grateful.

The playlists from the week are below. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! Put the music we dance together with other pieces that lift you up, calm you, and challenge you!

First, a couple of announcements:

A Day Away: a retreat for you
Take a day to rest, to move and dance, to make something, to eat nourishing food, to be together. On September 30, join me and Rebecca George for a day of self-care and relaxation at the Buck Mountain Episcopal Parish Hall in Earlysville.
Set down whatever you’re carrying, take a breath and feel the restorative power of a day away.

$100 if registered by August 30. $125 if registered by September 25. Limited to 20 participants.
Checks to SusaNia LLC and mailed to 1255 Sunset Avenue Ext., Charlottesville VA 22903 with indication of any food intolerances or at http://www.susanmcculley.com. Some scholarship money available, please inquire!
