Music & Other Gems Mar 12-15, 2018 – Shake it Up, Settle it Down

It’s not just what happens on the dance floor, it’s the way of everything. Things get shaken up and they settle down, they fly apart and they come together. Things are neat and organized and then they are a mess. That’s the way things are. We can use our practice to build the courage and skill we need to navigate all of it.

You can find this week’s Shake It Up, Settle It Down playlists 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!

But first, here are a bundle of things I know you want to know about:
