We close with a sharing circle in which you are welcome to speak about your experience in the dance. This time is meant to be reflective, sharing awareness and emotions that arise in the dance. Primarily offered for adults, children are welcome with adult accompaniment provided they can follow the talk-free and intentional structure and be mindful of their impact on others in the space. No experience or partner or shoes are needed. 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. 2nd and 4th Sun. of every month. $10.
