SYBARITIC: being devoted to pleasure, loving luxury and/or sensuous rapture, “to wallow in sybaritic splendor”.
A curated musical soundscape that creates a sensual and sexy environment that is both inviting and freeing for dancers, is the key to achieving authentic ecstasy. Sybaritic provides a space for us to devote ourselves entirely to pleasure, however that shows up in our bodies. Expectations of outcome are left at the door, so that we can dance, move and express ourselves physically and sensually, without limitations in how deeply connected we can be with ourselves, and with each other.
Time: 7 pm. Please arrive by 7:45 pm if at all possible.
Cost: $15 before 7:45 $25 after (CASH ONLY)
(For those in line to join us at 7:45, you will receive a token for the $15 price.)
Intention ~ Conduit
“In dance, in composition, in sculpture, the experience is the same: we are more the conduit than the creator of what we express.” – Julia Cameron
Our physical bodies are natural vessels for channeling our energy, emotions, expression and ecstasy. On this special evening, we will celebrate ourselves as a collective conduit for connection, in a space sparked for the sybaritic, as we tune into the electricity of the New Year. Come pulse, pluck and flow with us!
