I-Opener Dance NYC - April - Flow

"Flow is being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz."

DJ: Luminus

Warm up: Wren LaFeet

Facilitator: Sarah Monette

I-Opener Dance NYC - April 22nd


Move as you wish a in a judgement-free space, all ages and backgrounds welcome, engage as little or as much as you like. You may participate in the dance or just enjoy witnessing. The music is a colorful mix of world fusion balancing electronic and organic flavors weaving in elements of tribal beats, latin melodies, world base, festival house, soulful acapella, and much more! There’s interactive art, space for prayer or meditation, an area for flow toys, a kids corner with family actives, community networking hub, chill zone, and room to express yourself as the music inspires you.

1. Conversation outside the dance space

2. Judgement free, move however you wish

3. Respect yourself and one another

Connect with inquiry before assumption, give yourself permission to be present and free of digital distractions, enjoy a natural high, and co-create the experience with consideration. Any concerns at any point can be addressed with an available Space Holder. (listed at the entrance table)
