Cross Step Waltz with Patrick

Wed 12/18, 5-6:30 pm. Waltz on Wednesdays is the Rosa B's regular weekly practice for anyone who wants to learn or improve their Cross-Step Waltz or other waltz steps taught by Richard Powers recently in Gainesville. Waltz sessions are led by Patrick Harrigan, an adept in soft martial arts. Patrick has been doing cross-step waltz for the past six years and now also coaches individuals and couples, beginners and experienced waltzers alike, in the basics of cross-step waltz. "Cross-Step Waltz is one of the newest social dance forms, spreading quickly because it is easy to learn yet endlessly innovative, satisfying for both beginners and the most experienced dancers. It travels and rotates like traditional waltz, but the addition of the cross-step opens up a wide range of playful yet gracefully flowing variations." ~ Richard Powers The amazing part of all this is the price.

Winter Solstice Ecstatic Dance at House of Waking Life with Angela

Sun 12/22, 11 am-1 pm. Join us as we explore the 5 Rhythms of Ecstatic Dance. We'll let go of judgment of ourselves and others, embrace whatever emotions arise, and feel free to move, shake and groove however our bodies choose! For those of you who haven't been to an Ecstatic Dance, it's part free-form dance party, part moving meditation, and part community gathering. We let go of talking during the 90-minute playlist, which follows a "5 Rhythms" pattern (a concept created by Gabrielle Roth) that begins slowly, peaks with some hot beats, and gently brings us back down to earth. These elements facilitate awareness and appreciation of our bodies, allowing us to explore our inner landscapes. It's also good ol' fashioned FUN. We will begin with an opening circle at 7 pm sharp, so be sure to arrive on time if possible. Please reach out if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you there! Registration is available online through intotheHOWL.c ... House Of Waking Life, 109 SE 4th Avenue, Gainesville, 32601. 352-562-9919. Aurora Healing Arts - [more][website][email][events]

Cross Step Waltz with Patrick

Wed 1/08/20, 5-6:30 pm. Waltz on Wednesdays is the Rosa B's regular weekly practice for anyone who wants to learn or improve their Cross-Step Waltz or other waltz steps taught by Richard Powers recently in Gainesville. Waltz sessions are led by Patrick Harrigan, an adept in soft martial arts. Patrick has been doing cross-step waltz for the past six years and now also coaches individuals and couples, beginners and experienced waltzers alike, in the basics of cross-step waltz. "Cross-Step Waltz is one of the newest social dance forms, spreading quickly because it is easy to learn yet endlessly innovative, satisfying for both beginners and the most experienced dancers. It travels and rotates like traditional waltz, but the addition of the cross-step opens up a wide range of playful yet gracefully flowing variations." ~ Richard Powers The amazing part of all this is the price. For a limited time only, improve your cross-step waltz with Patrick and friends ... Rosa B Williams, 524 NW 1 Street, Gainesville, 32601. Patrick Harrigan. $5. Vintage Waltz - [more][email][events]
