About the Event
If you haven't danced with me before but you find ourself here reading this,
take that as all you need to know that you will be welcomed
and a 99% chance that you will love it! ~ Most of the time ~ 😉
Sometimes you will hate it ~ and that is also good medicine.
MANA MAI MANA ATU
Movement is mihi.
Doors open at 945am - Karakia around 10am.
and let's just say here - is really nice and super respectful if you could be on time 😉
Then depending on who is in the room depends on the journey we take.
Know that you are just what is required to make the dance floor a dance floor delight.
Know that it can be messy and beauty full, sometimes a little wild,
and sometimes so fucken tender you get to remember that the humans are actually super fucken awesome,
You will be given some invitations to find the pathway to your dance, to your embodiment, and to help return to yourself again and again. Each class is created and delivered by Kaiakindness,
supported by the curriculum of Open Floor and the facilitation of Manahau Embodied Movement x
Bring a personal water bottle,
wear clothes that you love to dance in,
and a shawl or blanket for the floor and if you like to keep your feet warm, socks x (I like to dance in socks)
We are in the back rooms of Te Whaea, go straight past the toilets and down to the end of the rainbow dance lane ~ if you get lost, ask at the desk they will help you find us.
A few things as we begin again in 2023
Firstly and importantly, if you are feeling physically sick in any way please stay home.
It is time to really respect our nervous systems, our immune systems and that of others.
Secondly...We get a real opportunity to begin again, each time we enter that dance floor. How we treat ourselves, where we rest our body, and how we spend time with ourselves are so important.
Take the time to tend to yourself first.
Tend to that remarkable body and when you are ready the other humans around you may be ready to dance with also.
Start close in.
Thirdly...We are kinda out of practice and as someone said, 'a bit rusty'. That's okay!
That's super fuckn normal. Be distracted, come back again.
The art of showing up takes practice if you can find a rhythm in regular attending.
It really does help.
If it gets too heavy inside you, take a break from yourself and just DANCE X
we are all there with you, and for reals!
we all need to let some light in.
