"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. " - Maya Angelou
I-Opener Dance keeps helping us to stay connected each Sunday morning. Apart, yet together we meet weekly to boost our immune systems, recalibrate and cheer each other up. We ground, we dance, we exchange words of encouragement.
Take this opportunity to gather your energy and to glance at our dance community, not just surviving, but thriving! We start with grounding meditation, get energized by a guided warm up with Jen Earls and move into a DJ'ed ecstatic dance wave - with DJ's Luminus & Journey Weaver.
Open your 👁s, dance with friends, and get your weekly dose of bliss!
