Community Dance at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Boone
Come join us Thursday evenings from 7:30 - 9:00 pm for expressive, conscious, free-style dancing.
These dances are opportunities to open your heart, mind and body to a full range of conscious, creative expression through movement…and have fun!
The musical playlists are designed to support a journey—a dynamic progression—of moods, tempos and rhythms within which you can explore the synergy of body, mind and spirit. This kind of dance is fun, engaging, and often transformative. We include a wide range of music drawing from rock, jazz, funk, soul, reggae, folk, Asian, African, Latin, Celtic, Americana, electronic, classical and more.
No prior dance experience is necessary; this is self-paced journey. If the music is fast, you can still dance slow. Your body has its own pacing, limitations, and responses to the moment, so respect that and don't feel pressured to dance any more vigorously than is comfortable.
The dance begins promptly at 7:30. It is best to stay for the entire set of music so you can fully immerse yourself in the experience, and to keep the group energy together for the duration of the set…and enjoy! Dance partners not required…we dance mostly as a group.
Wear loose clothing, and no street shoes on the dance floor, please (barefoot, socks or dance shoes are fine). Bring water to replenish.
Please, no alcohol, drugs or tobacco.
Suggested donation: $5-10. Look for the basket on the entrance table.
St. Luke's is located just behind Earth Fare in Boone, on 170 Councill St.
