Movement Medicine for Social Change

Movement is Medicine deserved by all. Therefore, all dance classes are offered on a communally supported sliding scale and nobody is turned away for lack of funds. If listed price is prohibitive, drop me a note and we’ll work something out. If you can pay more than listed price, see pink button “Add a Pay What you Want Amount” when you register. Your generosity helps create access for others and supports THESE AWESOME INITIATIVES in 2021:

At Embody the Rhythm we contribute in solidarity:

  • To honor the legacy, culture and people of Guinea, from which the music and dances in our classes originate.

  • To honor the legacy and culture of the Indigenous people’s of Maine, who’s ancestral land we are standing/dancing/drumming on.

  • To honor all Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and GLBTQ who continue to have to fight for the same respect, safety and opportunity that many of us take for granted, in this country and beyond.

  • To cultivate the healing energy we generate on the dance floor and send it beyond ourselves, outward into the world. To affirm healing power of Love.

  • To contribute in part to much-needed healing between populations within our human family.

Organizations we’ve contributed to in recent years:

Black Girl in Maine Media, Maine-Wabanaki REACH, Embodied Equity Consulting, For Us By Us, Families Belong Together
