Renewal is the focus of our movement journey together this month. Before diving into the new year, set an intention to renew yourself in mind, body and spirit for 2022.

Dance from the Heart is composed of 7 gentle steps that supports you in several ways:
Grounding in your body
Listening to your heart
Connecting to a heart-felt intention or dream
Releasing any fears or limiting beliefs
Embodying your intention with movement
Dance from the Heart is grounded in practices of trauma-informed care, healing justice and community resilience. For more information on Dance from the Heart, visit us at: https://www.criticalmassdancecompany.org/dance.html
