FORM THE OCEAN
THE FUN OF DANCING WITH YOUR BEST GROUP OF FRIENDS,
THE JOY OF SELF-EXPRESSION
& THE GIFT OF MEANINGFUL CONVERSATIONS
EXPECT TO LEAVE FEELING BRIGHTER AND MORE BOLD.
At this weekend, you'll dance a lot.
Contra dance, a community social dance, is a key offering this weekend. We feature warm and playful, nationally-known contra dance talent as callers and music-makers. They'll host a few workshops, too.
You'll get to know your body in others ways, as well - intuitively moving, stretching and relaxing throughout the three days.
You'll also have space to make stuff - together.
Have a skill you want to learn or share? Or simply enjoy being in the presence of other women while you work on projects?
We do, too. So a big part of this weekend is open time for reflective creative work. You can bring a project or skills of your own, or you can come bask in the collective abundance - or both!
You'll also have time to consider and offer ideas.
You might be asking yourself questions about what it means to be you, be a part of your contra community, and be a part of your local neighborhood or nation.
Us, too. We'll have guided and open spaces for you to have dialogues in big groups, small groups and one-on-one about ideas and issues important to you.
