Authentic Movement W20
with Christine Little, Mid-Maine Regional Adult Community Education
Authentic Movement, also known as Contemplative Dance, is an expressive, improvisational movement practice that allows participants a type of free association of the body.

Dancers, musicians, writers, artists, etc. find it a wonderful practice for discovering and exploring creative imagery. No dance experience is needed. Wear comfortable clothes. A free introductory class will be offered on Saturday, Feb. 15, 9:30-11:30 a.m. Limit 10 students. Storm date May 2.
