BLINDFOLD CONTACT-KIRTAN JAM
Come experience the freedom of dancing blindfolded… Dance like no one is watching! There will be some blindfolds available but please bring your own if you have one. Blindfolded Jams are very fun and magical and of course require extra awareness & safety. Being blind in the dance is a whole new experience that helps to let go of our prejudgements, agendas, and movement habits. We will always have at least 3 people without blindfolds on to maintain the safety of the space. We will also start with a talk and a warm-up about how to use blindfolds to enhance your dancing while staying safe.
*** PLEASE – Arrive no later than 8:15pm
“Come dancing, just like we did when I was just a kid!”
