Dance is Life 4-6pm
This class is a movement life exploration. It is dynamic zen, body/mind connection, human awareness, and FREEstyle (to be free of style.) It is primal, inclusive, basic and advanced. Movers will discover more about themselves and therefore the world around them. We will unlock the keys to life, living and loving, connecting the ‘dancer’ and the ‘yogi’, yourself and the Universe! We will work both solo, duo and in groups. This lecture & dance workshop fusion is a movement catalyst, a life changer and a whole lot of fun!
DownTemple 7-10pm
This is a unique dance event that will bring out your inner purr! Come soft, come subtle. Come curious, and get ready to snuggle. The dance floor will be in full effect with DJ Gabriel Francisco and DJ Dyops. Music will be deep, dirty, smooth, and sexy as our DJs explore the essence of DownTemple.

The wild and deep score of a future-ancient gathering. The soundtrack of the Cosmos, vibrating and rich with movement potential. Electronic percussion, heady almost nostalgic in its real-time recollection. Windy, wet and silky, yet Earthy, tanned and ashy. Sonic support for the Soul, binding past, releasing present and moving the future!
