New Dance Class with Tahni Holt, Suniti Dernovsek and Luke Wyland: It's a Fucking Miracle!

Tuesday nights // 7pm-8pm

FIRST CLASS OCTOBER 8th

It’s a fucking miracle we are here right now under and held by this sky. It’s a fucking miracle we breathe, we move, we sweat, we love, we anger, we feel anything at all, it’s a fucking miracle. It’s a fucking miracle we dance, we prance, we shake, we jazz finger it up sometimes. This is a dance party, an exercise class, a somatic lesson, a play date, it’s a fucking miracle. We are collective action and we are individual desire. It’s a Fucking Miracle is nonexclusive, it is meant for every body of all shapes, sizes, abilities and identities. For this hour, your body is the guide as prompts are given, your body translates all that is into this moment of a miracle, of you being here right now. Now let’s dance.

Tuesdays 7pm-8pm // $12 drop-in // $50 for class card of 5
