I-Opener Dance Boston (Oct 14th) - "October Glow"
"Shadows mutter, mist replies.. darkness purrs as midnight sighs." ~ Madison Alcedo Warm with us on the dance floor as the leaves golden and flocks fly south... in a month of carved pumpkins, warm apple cider, trick-or-treating, fall foliage, and breezy nights... lets gather together to feel our community glow! We're delighted to welcome back Chandra Cantor to invite us into movement. Our featured guest this month comes all the way from Holland... ecstatic dance DJ Esta Polyesta will be spinning sweet morning magic, along with our resident artist DJ Luminus, to offer us a full morning of I-Opening Autumn dancing! 10am Arrival 10:15 Opening circle 10:20 Yoga Warmup with Chandra Cantor 10:40 DJ'd Ecstatic Dance w/ Esta Polyesta & DJ Luminus 12:20 Closing circle You may participate in the dance or just enjoy witnessing. There’s interactive art, space for prayer or meditation, a zone for flow toys, and a kids corner with family actives. All are welcome! We dance barefoot, though non-street shoes may be worn for health reasons. We consider the dance floor to be a sacred uplifted space and request conversation be taken outside to honor dance and respect those engaged in the dance journey. Please review the safety and respect guidelines posted at the door and any concerns at any time may be addressed with an available Space Holder. Honor each other, honor the space, and honor our hearts with dance! ~ LOCATION ~ The Arms for the Armory 191 Highland Ave. Somerville, MA The Somerville Armory seeks to galvanize the creative spirit by providing a space where working artists and the community can come together.
