No CLASS on 16th OCTOBER  and 23rd October We are in the Swiss Cottage Community Centre - same time, see you there.

DATES:  CLASSES BEGIN AGAIN on WEDNESDAYS from September 18th to December 18th. The Classes continue4 on 15th January and break for Easter on 25th March. I will try this year to ensure that the classes continue through the summer with another teacher.  The drumming classes I arranged this year were popular but I need a conscious dance teacher to take the class through from post Easter to mid July; hopefully this will happen in 2020. 

When you arrive at 21 Winchester Road,  sign in at the reception desk then make your way up to the first floor.  Turn left left at the top of the stairs and you will find the Mandelson Room.   There are toilets where you can change.  Bring all your belongings into the room. 

Every  Wednesday the class is a gentle and meditative  for Elders and for anyone  who would like to dance in the daytime.  For those who need low impact movement there is no pressure to do more than you can.......there is no need for any dance/physical experience, nor do you need a any standard of fitness, and there will be chairs to rest on or dance from.  Whatever movement you can make is welcome.  Beginners welcome. Wheelchair access.

Although the class is  90 minutes long;  this gives everyone  time to be able to relax/meditate as well as dance without the rush of fitting everything into an hour.  It will also give us time to talk without looking at the clock.... we start slowly and have a slow and meditative track after approx 35 minutes leaving enough time to rest and then begin again!  soi what do we do?

We move,  we give our bodies attention; we become aware of our possibilities and our limitations. We can sit or lie on the floor and we can dance. If you love to sway to a beat and haven't got enough room in your kitchen - come and join us and move on a beautiful floor in the company of others who want to let their feet dance. Gay has taught Conscious dance since 2001.   Elements of 5 Rthythms and Open Floor have inspired her to offer you a dance of many colours, moods, connections and rhythms as well as being in a congenial group.  We often go to the Centre Cafe upstairs after the class to contin ue our connections over a cup of something....

Your will very welcome to join us.

I will be working with music (all sorts) and encouraging movement somewhere in the body....and offering the possibility of dance from chairs to floor.

Come along and have a go on 19th September - it's a free class.  You will be very welcome.  I have been teaching Conscious Dance (basically when you are aware and move from your body) for nearly 20 years and teaching and holding classes for older people for 10 years...I am 77 and love this practice and looking forward to beinging it to Blackheath....
