I tried offering weekly classes as Studio Zahiya last year and through May of this year on Tuesdays at lunchtime. The effort was well received by a few, but my lasting impression of the experiment that lunchtime for working folks is not a good time for a class. I loved the space. I relished the freedom to create the experience we wanted with out censure of my words or any individual’s movement that are imposed at other facilities.
- In the evenings. No more need to reschedule work or miss class because of meetings.
- Free parking. It will be held upstairs of the French Broad Food Co-op at the Movement & Learning center. Park at the lower lot of the co-op and you’re all taken care of without hunting, pecking, and paying for parking.
- Wednesdays. The otherwise “off” day of Joyus Groove at other places I teach, and great way to celebrate hump day as the week rolls toward the weekend.
- 1.5 hours. I’ve always felt that 1 hour is rushed, and that there’s always more we can explore. We’ll gain the added benefit of more time moving, grooving, and reconnecting with our bodies. It will make for a richer relaxation period.
- 100% Unique. You, of course, will bring your individuality to each dance move we unify around. But, I’ll also be sure that each song for each session is one we haven’t done before. That’s a lot of new and different music! Can you handle it?
