Community workshop: Dancing into Self-Integration, July 20 & 21

  • Nashville Friends Meeting House 530 26th Ave. North Nashville, TN 37209 USA (map)

This dance workshop was created by Carrie Gerow for men and women with no previous dance experience, as well as dancers of all levels, to encourage acknowledgement and acceptance of the body as it is, and lead participants to deeper self-awareness and connection to oneself as a whole.



Dancing into Self-Integration aims to gather aspects of the body that have somehow been shunned from the self as unworthy or undesirable and reintegrate them as valued attributes just as they are today. We practice movement designed to take inventory of the body as it is in the present, gently yet consistently guiding it toward efficient movement patterns with strength, ease and cultivation of pleasant presence in our experience.


Schedule: July 20 & 21:

Saturday: 1-2:30 PM, 3-4:30 PM

Sun: 2-3 PM, 3:30-5 PM

Carrie will add a new focus to each class, while repeating a similar progression of movements. Classes can be enjoyed on their own or in rich continuity, allowing participants in the series to sink into a deeper experience.



Full workshop: $40

Saturday: $20

Sunday: $18

Single Class: $12
