There will be opportunities to move creatively, and also to find the humor in music (and ourselves).
Free expression rules! Feel like singing while you dance? Be my guest! And you are allowed -- encouraged, even -- to tap into your IMAGINATION via your inner child to let your body move in new and unusal ways!
PROPS! For a soft-shoe dance, I'll provide CANES. (Think Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire.) MASKS will be available for World Beat music. ANKLE BELLS will be provided for FOOT PERCUSSION.
Then there is the workout aspect; the goal here is to come fully ALIVE and get real healthy. Working up a sweat is good. Doing it when the soul is involved is AWESOME!
Thanks, Simone for being a great catalyst for physical and emotional creative expression. I felt immediately welcomed in and was able to fully express that which was pent up in me in such an enjoyable and full way. It was so fun to be with other fiesty women...who were dancing in their full power and WOW, what incredible energy ... in everyone! I enjoyed the mix of facilitated movement, mimic movements and free expression to certain songs. Good choices of music!"
I will select the music and facilitate many of the dance moves. YOU will get a chance to lead too, if you wish. You will also get a chance to dance free-style.
Footwear: Your best shoe will have a somewhat slippery sole so you can glide and turn easily. But any footwear, including bare, works.
... Dance-While-You-Can is VERY worthwhile. Your songs were fantastic...We got a lot of great feedback from residents saying they loved the dancing."
