Practical Magic

Summon the Elements for Inspiration, Creativity & Technique

Join Kathy LIVE Sunday October 3rd at 9am Pacific time. Course will be recorded and available right here immediately following.

Like a luscious cauldron of soup, our watery bodies stir together music and movement to create transformative expressions of sound. We dance the earth beat of a drum, undulate to the flow and breath of a nai, and give in to the ways of water when we Dance in the Flow©.

In this 90-minute workshop we work with the 4 families of fast and slow FCBD® style movements and the 4 earthly elements – Earth, Air, Fire, Water.

Connecting more deeply to the natural world we then find elemental inspiration to cultivate creativity and explore new ways to improve technique.
