SOL Dance Experience

December 30, 2019 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

“Join In” for a fun dance experience like no other! SOL Dance Experience is an hour-long, LIGHTS OUT, free-form dance session for women of all fitness levels. This is a women’s only class. It’s about FREEDOM: Because when no one – not even you – can see you, your inhibitions fade away. When was the last time you danced like no one was watching? No more self-consciousness, judgments or social worries. In the dark, you’re free to move your body however you want or need to. In a room full of women, you’re free to dance your dance with total abandon. It’s about RELEASE: Just an hour of SOL reduces stress, clears mental blocks, energizes your physical body, and lifts your spirits. It’s about FUN: Bored with your cardio routine? Part dance party, part workout – we play a mix of eclectic dance tunes (changes weekly) designed to get you moving in different ways to different beats. It’s not your typical “workout”. It’s about EXPRESSION: We provide you a safe place to express yourself at your own pace, your own way: dance, sing, laugh, shout, cry, punch, kick, stretch, it’s your hour to be in your moment, in your power. You’ll leave feeling strong and exhilarated. Cost: $10 Non-Members/$5 LJCC Members

I’m a lifelong fan of dance, and am privileged to know some incredible male dancers. So when there was a recent brouhaha over Good Morning America host Lara Spencer giggling at the idea of Britain’s Prince George lacing up his ballet slippers, it seemed like the perfect time to introduce y’all to three amazing male dancers right here in Birmingham.

They’ve got a message for all the young guys out there, too (and the rest of us). So, if you love dance too, read on.
