With only 2 events left before our summer break, you are invited to come express and celebrate your passion and love affair for dance with DJ Abheeru and very special guests James Ren and Orlando Alvarez! They will take the DJ's music to the next level by jamming over it...
With this event titled I LOVE DANCE, we are offering those questions to explore why do YOU love dancing?
- How passionate are you about movement?
- How much freedom do you feel when you dance?
- Do you get a natural 'high' when your body moves to the music?
- What do you prefer: dancing alone and be introspective?
- Or connect with a friend, merge with a lover and be expressive?
- Do you dance like no one is watching?
- Or do you like when others are watching?
- What inspires you when you watch other dancers?
- Is dancing part of your spiritual practice or just plain fun?
- Do you go wild and crazy or enjoy the subtlety of movement?
- Or is it some or all of the above???
