Dance Temple Cowichan hosts monthly events at our favourite local community center with a rotating group of facilitators/DJ's.
It is an evening filled with music, movement, community and intention.
What To Expect:
All ages, genders, races, sizes gather together in the welcoming, inclusive atmosphere @ The Hub. We invite you to take off your shoes, have a full water bottle, dress in layers and prepare to move.
The first half hour is a warm up, social time to orientate self into the space, say hello, do some yoga and take some deep breaths. Then we have a gentle opening, sometimes with light facilitation and an invitation to consider these three tips to support your dance practice:
1. Minimize talking on the dance floor.
2. Listen to your body.
3. Dance like no one is watching or dance like everyone's watching..... your choice!
We provide the music and let you feel the rhythm, feel the beat and discover the freedom in your feet. No experience necessary. There are no steps to learn, no right or wrong way to move, just allow the music to guide you while surrounded by community. At dance temple you are encouraged to honour yourself, whether you are dancing or lying in stillness on the floor. It is all welcome. Often the hardest part is just showing up!
We often end our dance sessions with live music, didgeridoo and a gentle closing circle often with lots of smiles and consensual hugs (oh how we all miss hugging during these Covid days)
