About the event

This June 15th is my 52 Birthday and through a turn of events I find myself with an empty spot in my calendar and wide open space and no plans. 

So what am I going to do? 

Am I gonna sit here on my birthday worrying my aging body and dwindling bank balance, distracting my self with social media – inadvertently reinforcing the narrative that life is ‘average’ and effectively meaningless?

F*>k No! I’m gonna celebrate.

Because at 52 I’ve learned a thing or two, and I know now that if we lived every day like it was our birthday, meaning if we lived like every day was as precious as a new born baby, the amount of suffering in the world, the violence currently being inflicted upon the planet, the children and the vulnerable would be, well, utterly inconceivable.

Actually, I don’t even need a reason to celebrate. I don’t need a birthday, or an anniversary or a graduation or a funeral. I don’t even need a protest rant like this one. I just need to wake up. Wake up and breath in the true magnitude and magnificence of existence. Period.

How do I do that? I get out of my controlling, strategizing, ruminating thought patterns and into my body – I dance.

If this strikes a cord with you, I invite you to join me, June 15th to Celebrate Life and Save Lives with movement, connection and cake while we fundraise for Gaza Relief. All proceeds that exceed basic expenses will go to* PCRF.  

To make a donation and reserve your class & cake on the day you can:  

  • pay what you can through my website (mininum $20) 
  • or if you want to avoid service charges,  *e transfer the amount you choose with. *Please remember to write 'Celebrate' in the memo section and include your name so I know who its from.

If you can't make it but want to donate follow the link to my fundraising campaign, Celebrate Lives - Save Lives.

Here’s how the day will go:

10:00 - 11:30am Movement Melting Pot.

Melt tension patterns…release the flow.

Drawing from my vast history of somatic practice this class will be an opening, wiggling, rocking Yoga Fusion practice that allows all of us to stretch beyond the mat, out of bounds and into greater ease and playfulness in the body - no previous yoga or dance experience required- everyone welcome.

11:30 - 12:30pm Tea and Coffee …. with CAKE!

1:00 - 3:00pm Contact Joy

Notice how children can hurt themselves and be crying one second then giggling and playing as if nothing happened the next? That’s because they don’t try and control themselves, they just let things flow. Joy is just a natural expression of being in flow.

For this Contact Improv class I’ll lead us through an experience for deepening Flow. There will be no stalling, stopping, doubting and comparing. We will all be encouraged to let go and let flow, so that each of us, no matter what, are able to touch and be touched by the natural joy that comes from dancing in full connection to life.

3:00- 4:30 Dance Jam!

Wear your sequins, fun fur, three piece suit or just your plain old jogging pants. However your dressed, make sure your brilliant, wacky, genius self is ready to dance to the music and celebrate… However, you freakin’ want!

**If you can’t make it to the event but want to celebrate life and bring urgent care, food and medical services to the children of Palestine, please donate through my fundraising campaign, Celebrate Lives - Save Lives.
