We have been hosting Sensorial Dancing and Creation sessions in Prospect Park!
The world we exist in requires a universal level of connectivity now more than ever before. As dancers and movement practitioners, we are interested in pursuing our ongoing mission to provide platforms and opportunities for human-to-human connection, and now we are finding ways to amplify the voices of local activist organizations by sharing our craft of dance and embodied healing. Through a unified effort of donation based classes and various engagements, we want to encourage the moving body community to join us for a week of putting their bodies, minds, souls, and spare change where it matters most…..in the hands of our frontline activists.
Activism is Embodied Activism. We, Ashley Menestrina and Isabel Umali, have co-created a platform to bring awareness to an area that needs attention and love, and raise money for local activist organizations. We've put together our skills and invited some friends to offer AMAZING workshop weeks of movement, meditation, growth and exploration across many mediums.
Get an idea of what we do from our past workshop weeks:
This workshop week is centered around Climate Awareness and we are partnering with the performance platform, CreateART. The performances they art putting on with NoOSPHERE ARTS will bookend our workshop week and the amazing choreographers will be teaching us class- on the roof of NoOSPHERE ARTS!
We are raising money for WE ACT for Environmental Justice, a Harlem-based nonprofit working to fight environmental racism at the city, state, and federal levels.
Our amazing lineup of movement teachers will be teaching OUTSIDE. Sign up and donate! See our schedule below
