A simple dance designed to release our inner dancer, awaken our courage and ground us in the present moment.

WHAT IS AN ONLINE CLASS?
We will use a platform called Zoom, it can be accessed from computer, iPad or iPhone. If you have a computer, choose that over the iPad or iPhone, not only will the sound be better but also you can interact more and see more of others.
IS ZOOM EASY?
Yes, it just takes a few minutes to start it up the first time you use it.
If you are new to Zoom please do watch this introductory video from Zoom HERE
