Sybaritic: Dark Beauty

December 23, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

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.

When: Monday, December 23rd, 2019

Time: 7 pm. Please arrive by 7:30 pm if at all possible.
Where: Sanctuary Club, 33 NW 9th

Enter on 9th, we’re on the second floor behind the pink door.
Cost: $15 before 7:30 $25 after (CASH ONLY)

Intention ~ Dark Beauty
“Character, like a photograph, develops in darkness.” – Yousuf Karsh

Though the light is returning, nights are still long and dark. The significance of being attuned to the natural world is a reminder of the beauty that exists in darkness. This gift, a space that the mind is often cautious of, is the beginning of all life. It is the womb of being, a place of creativity and intense vulnerability. It is in the fertile void, where the seed germinates and breaks through to the light. Let us revel in the dark, be beauty and dance boldly. Through the sybaritic soul, we honor this night, and trust in the warmth of the returning sun.
