Furious Dancing Provincetown

Alice Walker wrote a book called "Hard Times Require Furious Dancing." She and her family rented a hall to dance and shake their significant blues and depression away. It was mighty effective. Her book of poems is about just that.

We decided we'd like space and time for furious dancing. Saturday morning will be filled with world music and beats, drumming and percussion, and some popular tunes shared by our Inspiration Team.

Dance, move, drum, rest, listen, sing with us....whatever moves you.

Joined by guest "Furious Dance" facilitators, Guerda Victor, Maggie Sky, Carolyn Waters and Kat Suwalski, there will be some guided movement and invitation for exploration and dancing furiously. Let's come into our own power, raise the collective vibration, and explore what it is we're choosing to manifest as we move forward.

Whether your body wants to move, you'd like to sit or lie down to rest, tap your feet, or grab a drum or shaker, we'll be together in community while diving deep into our own exploratory process. There are plenty of ways to move and be moved.
