WORKSHOPS SERIES

Improve:
- Cultural Understanding
- Mental Harmony
- Strength
- Coordination
- Stamina
- Grace
- Fluidity
- Sensuality
- Connection

All of these workshops are different to each other. MIND + BODY and STORYTELLING are suitable for complete Beginners and Improvers. All workshops will also change within their own category so, for example, you could attend two MIND + BODY workshops in a row and still learn new skills while cementing what you have previously learned.


Wear: Anything comfortable to move in. A sarong or pareo is recommended. Note that we dance barefoot and many people like to bring wipes for their feet after class. 
Bring: Water, pen and notebook, and an open mind
