Dance - Acro Yoga - Music
Shimmy your shell, free your inner amphibian, and soar on the currents of your spirit and body! Each Flying Turtle Dance ventures far and wide across a musical landscape of diverse moods and genres. You'll begin with a facilitated opening that warms your being and our shared communal nest, and when the music is done, we'll gather for potluck snacks and Turtle family time! Let's move -- within a playful, supportive space -- into our truths, into our shadows to shift them, through our patterns to our cores, and ascend our joys to unfurl our powers!

Synthesis is a newly emerging dance at OmCulture that combines the best of many dance traditions. Set to a two-hour wave of eclectic music offered by different guest DJs every week, Synthesis brings together the free-from aspect of ecstatic dance, the physicality of contact improv and the interactive spirit of partner dancing. We create a safe container in which to explore movement and connection as a group while maintaining the freedom to be and express ourselves. We look forward to dancing with you!
Sol means Sun, which comes streaming in through the windows to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in which to awaken into your day. Doors open at 10:30am with a full 30 minutes of warm up time to do what your heart desires to prepare for community and connection. Our opening circle is at 11am and the dance runs until 12:30pm. We circle briefly after dance to share our experiences, then have time to socialize before final close at 1pm. Sol Dance is a bit more meditative and introspective than what you might experience on a weekday evening. We select from a handful of our most experienced DJs who are often accompanied by a live musician. Sol Dance is cancelled for the summer & will resume October 6, 2019
OM FUSION DANCE
We offer a lesson prior to the main dance each week from, and switches between technique-based and conceptual-based to grow a dancer's technique and creativity. We strive to bring a wide variety of teachers and dance disciplines to expose our community to as many different dance forms as possible. All ages welcome and no partner necessary! Find more information on their website HERE.
Mixed variety dances happening every second and fourth Friday of the month. Both nights have an all levels lesson, a mixed-music variety dance, and a special late night event. The variety dance offers a wide range of styles each time, including swing, Fox Trot, waltz, ballroom, Latin, WCS, NC2S, fusion and blues. All levels welcome! Visit www.rolluptherug.com for more information.
We expect dance attendees to take care of themselves, physically, mentally and emotionally, and ask that each person read our dance agreements prior to joining the dance on Mondays or Thursdays. These are living documents that we plan to edit and add to as needed. Mondays and Thursdays have two different sets of agreements because they are two different dances and communities. Please read both if you intend on attending both days of dance. We'd love to have you there!
