While Sunday Dance is on Hold
In response to Embodydance Community Council’s decision to put Sunday dance on hold through July and August, a group of dedicated individuals in our community, led by Guthrie Miller, has decided to take up the mantle with a new Sunday dance while we are on hiatus. Dubbed “Experimental Sundays”, this dance will take place at the same time and the same place, but with some differences in how the dance is run.
“Experimental Sundays” will be very much like the former Embodydance Sundays and our continuing Embodydance Thursdays. However, space will be provided to experiment with some new ways of organizing the dance. Some of the ideas being considered are:
· alternating freeform tribal dancing with some more guided instruction
· live music breaks (singing, percussion, instrumental)
· providing a training and welcoming ground for new facilitators to try out
In addition, further experimentation may be done to find new ways of attracting people to the dance through social media and other outlets.
Core Group Hosts @ Railyard Performance Center
This is not an official Embodydance event, but it is organized by a core group of people who are involved in the Embodydance community. The core group is dedicated to acting co-creatively to organize and facilitate the dance. This group is open to anyone, subject to approval of those already a part of it. Those in the group will decide on an ongoing basis how the dance is run and how monetary contributions will be distributed. Their hope is to find a way to make a Sunday dance at this time financially viable.
