Music & Other Gems May 28-31, 2018 – Balance, Health, Life: Verbs

As a recovering English major, I love to think about and play with words. After this week’s classes on the verbs of balance, health and life, I’m wondering if there are any nouns at all? Maybe nothing is a solid thing and everything is a process.

You can find this week’s Balance Health Life: Verbs 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! Please let me know if you have any questions about any of the music we dance to!

But first, here are some things I know you want to know about:

Susan teaching Friday, Jun 1, 545pm at acac Downtown
In an unexpected turn of events (Mary Linn! Horrible poison ivy! Yikes!), I’ll be teaching this Friday evening. It’s a birthday request for classic rock and drums! Come play! Nia 101 at 545pm, class from 6-7pm.

Nia Freedance First Fridays with Kate at ACAC ~ Friday, Jun 1!
Every first Friday Kate Aust shares a Nia freedance class at ACAC Albemarle Square. Nia Freedance gives you an opportunity to play for a full hour moving your body’s way. We each get to tap into the creative wisdom of our body, emotions, mind and spirit stimulating our own unique movement creativity. The next Nia Freedance class will be Friday, Jun 1 from 11:25 to 12:25 in studio B.

Cville Dance Co-Op: Falling or Flying with Susan ~ Sunday, Jun 10, 1015am-1215pm
I’m putting together a playlist for the Cville Dance Co-Op based on the song Falling or Flying by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51crtZBSWRk) I’ve been thinking about how both falling and flying are full of energy. And how both falling and flying could be scary and unsettling and both could also be exciting and eye-opening. Are we falling or flying? Are we living or dying?
I’ll be offering music with that focus and holding the space for the Cville Dance Co-op on Sunday, June 10 from 10:15-12noon at Common Ground in the Jefferson School. The Co-op http://www.cvilledancecoop.com/who-we-are/ is a substance free, non-verbal, barefoot, 115 minutes of freedance. No steps to learn, no teacher, nothing but what’s flowing and moving in your own body. Let’s fall and fly together. I hope you’ll join us.
C’ville Dance Co-op, http://cvilledancecoop.com
Location (Common Ground, 2nd floor of Jefferson School, 233 4th St NW)
Date/time: Sunday, Jun 10: doors open at 10:15am for warming up, entrance locks at 10:45am, dancing until noon, then closing circle (come for the whole time!)
What to bring: Water bottle, comfortable clothes, optional donation for Common Ground
You can RSVP or ask questions at the Facebook event here.

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