Body as Playground-
Interactive Play of Dance & Trance

with P.M. Vincenza Dante, LCSW-R, LCAT

Your Body is a magical playground with secret passageways to inner resources and emotional information. It beckons you to play! Playing with the elements of time, weight, space and energy flow, we may learn who we are in a given moment and create who we wish to be. Participants are guided in and out of felt experiences using movement, sound, and imagery to enter an altered state of creative trance promoting intra-psychic reorganization and enhanced self-awareness. Dress comfortably and prepare to enjoy your body as playground!
