home michael frantiWhat is home, anyway? This week, we explored the feeling of being at home in our bodies, in our movement, and wherever we happen to be.

Below are all the playlists from the week ~ mostly we played with Elegant Stumbling with a little break on Tuesday to celebrate Sara Marks and send her off on her move to Colorado.

Join me on Spotify where you can listen to all the music for free! Just 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 reminders:
TUESDAY & THURSDAY DOWNTOWN 840-940AM! ~ acac downtown Tuesday and Thursday morning Nia with Susan is from 840am-940am! Come play and let your practice embody your whole day!
NEW NIA 101 SATURDAYS FROM 1230-1245 WITH MARY LINN! ~ Mary Linn offer Nia 101 before her Saturday class: an introduction to Nia’s 52 Moves to refresh current students and help new students get a feel for the moves. Nia 101 is from 1230-1245 and class is from 1245-145, at Albemarle Square, Studio A.
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.

*** PLAYLIST NOTE: My playlists can also be found on Spotify https://www.spotify.com/us/ by following “susanmcculley” (no space) and look for Public Playlists. Sometimes music is not available on Spotify so I may replace with another version or skip songs. What you find below is exactly what I used in class. ***

Paisley Pants 007A week of dancing the DragonLily Dance of agility and mobility: I experienced some of the sweatiest classes in recent memory, some sore muscles in unexpected places, and of course, neon salmon pants. What more could a person ask for??

How about some music? Here are all the playlists from the week: lots of Carlos AyaRosas choreography and some other juicy yumminess besides.

Next week, we’ll continue playing with the Sensations of Fitness (dare I call them the Sensations of Life? Why yes, yes I do.). In the meantime, I invite you to notice how you do what you do. Just pay attention. It’s the first step to giving us choices about how to respond.

Dance on. Shine on.

Snow Walk on Rivanna 008From MLK Day to snow (??) days to some freezing temperatures (even for this New-Englander-Who-Was-Recently-In-Minnesota) it’s been quite a week. The power of acts of love – both to others and our very own selves – is what each of us can do to create positive change in the world. Thank you for setting that intention with me.

Yesterday, I did some Nia with a gaggle of 2nd graders at Kacie-Linn Engle’s art studio. Law, did we have some fun dancing and making art together! I noticed that even for these tender 8- and 9-year-olds, saying positive things about themselves and their own work was challenging. May we all do our best to act and speak with love…and to encourage self-love and self-support in our children.

Here are a couple of links I thought y’all would enjoy this week:
Imagine by Playing for Change

Check out this artist who dances and creates images at the same time. Heather Hansen article and video.

Sixteen years ago tomorrow, I met (and pretty much instantly fell in love with) my husband, Frank. From that day, we’ve talked about travelling, really travelling, and exploring the world. When we met, Frank’s two children were 7 and 3. Now they’re 23 and 19 and the younger just started at UVA. A week from today, my love and I will be flying to Costa Rica for the month of February. I hardly know what to think of this long-hoped-for adventure. I’ll share more about that next week. But for now, know that all my classes will be covered by our extraordinary acac Nia team starting on Thursday, Jan 30:
Thursdays 9am ~ Adrienne
Mondays 1045am ~ Mary Linn
Tuesdays 9am ~ Kayde
Wednesdays 1055am ~ Anne
Huge thanks to my colleagues for making this exciting journey possible.

I’m not gone yet, though, my friends. I’ll be teaching Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday next week! Hope to see you either on the blog or on the dancefloor!

Dance on. Shine on.
