An on-going closed group with Alex Svoboda of FreedomDANCE


freedomDANCE sessions are not dance classes as such.

Yes, we move to the music. Yes, we sweat. Yes, we dance with commitment and abandon…

And yet, what we do is much more elusive, subtle and mystical than perfecting dance routines. We are establishing connections. And our dance floor is the nexus of these connections.

This on-going group will be dedicated to honouring the connection between what we practice physically on the dance floor and what we begin to practice in our lives. We will be celebrating the dance’s ability to change our life for the better!

We will dance fully in a company of the same people and we will invite the best things that the dance offers so generously into our everyday life.

With Cathy Ryan

Cambridge, 2nd–4th October 2020
Storey’s Field Centre, Eddington Ave, Cambridge CB3 1AA

“A teacher of mine recently said that one of the most radical actions he can think of at the moment for a better world is to lie down every day for half an hour and rest – in the middle of the day.

I love this.

That’s what we’re going to explore.”
