Dear Dancing Friend,

The arrival of Halloween signals a shift into November School Exam time at our Fitzroy venue. Our close relationship with St Brigid’s means we are able to continue holding our classes during this busy month. So we ask for your patience as we share our dance space with school students.

Monday Moving Meditations with Lucine tonight: Impulse to Lyrical. For me, to truly enter into lyrical I have to let go of my agenda. It’s like playing with my kids; if I have a timeline or any expectations, it’s like herding cats. When I let go of control and follow the non-linear, non-sensical chaotic nature of their play, suddenly I pop into this realm of possibility and hilarity that most of us adults have forgotten how to access. This realm is quite delicate for me; if I grasp for any control, I pop right back out of it, back into “reality”. Today in the Space in Between we will explore how you follow your impulse into Lyrical. 

Tuesday classes are on as usual this week.
Reminder: Next week, there will be NO CLASSES on Melbourne Cup Day (Tuesday 7th November). Monday 6th November class is on as usual, and will be the final in Lucine’s series “The Space Between”.

Castlemaine Sweat is on this Friday with Thais.

Next Sunday Sweat is 5th November at the Convent with David and Meredith.

Workshop news:
Journey Into Trance with Jonathan Horan –
Early Bird expires on 9th November, so book soon to take advantage of the discounted registration.

More Than This –
5Rhythms Teacher-in-Training Thais Sansomrecently danced with Alain Allard and Sarah Pitchford, and has this to say about the experience:

Husband and wife team Alain and Sarah offer and hold an incredibly safe space where deep, rich unraveling can occur. Their astute attention both towards the group and every individual person, brings an extraordinary tenderness and edgy awakening to each story. I was petrified heading into their workshop …… and came out hungry for so much more.

Having recently danced with them in More Than This, I cannot wait to participate again and be taken new to that place of raw soul. We are so lucky they are coming to Australia- make sure you don’t miss out!

With love to your dancing feet,

All the team at Moving Essence
