Journey with A’lan and Anđela in a 2-hour workshop that promises to be as enlightening as it is entertaining,

as we take a deeply connected dive into enhancing your dance experience through the exploration of the art of close embrace & sensuality. Our focus on embodied centering and grounding will help you be present with a dance partner and create a powerful dance experience that goes beyond just physical touch. Whether you’re new to dancing or have been enjoying ecstatic and/or partner dancing for some time, you’ll experience moments of playfulness and passion that will ignite your spirit and leave you invigorated.

This workshop is designed to deepen your understanding and experience of a magical bridge between dance, spirituality and synergy, and is divided into two enriching parts:

Part 1: The Art of Embrace (60 minutes) - a comprehensive lesson focusing on building a fluid, close embrace frame through presence, polarity and flow;

Part 2: Practice Dance (60 minutes) - an exuberant dance practice to breathe life into your newly acquired skills.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to transform your dance into a deeply connected, electrifying experience.

Price: $35 early-bird / $40 at the door

Schedule & Late Policy (if applicable): *Doors close at 7:30pm. Please arrive on time as we will not be able to let people in late once we begin*
