SOL Dance Experience

Read Time 1 Minutes

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
