Movement for Movement People: A Stretch, Dance, Jiggle Workshop for Tired Activists
October 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm EDTFree
As activists we often work too much, carry worries, and push ourselves hard. Always another meeting, vigil, rally, campaign, gathering, strategy session, or march to attend! Self-care sometimes get side-lined while work gets us up early and keeps us up late. Join dancer, educator, and beautiful-spirit Miss Olivia for a time to stretch, move, dance, carry on, enjoy good music, let go, and feel free. No dance or any kind of experience necessary. People of all ability and mobility levels most welcome – there will be a place for everyone and a way for us all to move and express ourselves. Join us!
