Dance dates just require you to show up at the appointed time and share the experience with another.
You will need to have; some space to move/ 9 mins 3/3/3 with a timer/ notebook/ phone/ another person to share the experience with.
Stand, be still for 3, enjoy the circulation of energy. Move for 3, include pleasure of travel. 3 share with your partner via drawing, sounding, creating in any way.

Meditative Practice will be held Saturday March 20th @ 4PM-6pm GMT via zoom

Meditative Practice is a body mind practice that is focused on stillness, mindful movement and deep play. It supports regulation, care and the ability to be responsive to both the wild and the disciplined within ourselves. During this practice we will meditate, move together and self-research in stillness and action, then in relationship with each other as part of a big ensemble.

First offered in 1980 by Barbara Dilley, Contemplative Dance is now practiced in its original and adapted forms all over the world.

CDP brings together the discipline of sitting meditation with free movement investigations and the practice of improvisation. It is an opportunity to integrate outer and inner worlds, alone and together.

The practice begins with sitting meditation followed by personal awareness practice and then the group practice called “Open Space” occurs, where Deep Play unfolds! The session concludes with a closing circle for discussion and observations.

Bernadette Divilly translates CDP principles and practices to her research in Dance Movement Psychotherapy and Socially Engaged Choreography. She has written and published on this work. Bernadette is a regular member of Dance Art Lab now in it 16th season which meets at the Naropa University Boulder Co. established by Barbara 15 years ago to support building a dance art tribe around her work. She has been supported by the Arts Council of Ireland, Galway Dance Project and Galway City Council to attend. Bernadette recently interviewed Barbara about aspects of her work and that interview will be available in due course.
