Spring into AbunDANCE: Getting to know our meditative dance bodies in community

“Do you ever scroll through the comments on an event you missed by a hair’s breadth, just to mourn what you missed?

That’s how I found this post about the impact of dance. It compelled me so much that it kind of freaked me out.

Here’s some good news! It’s becoming a FREE event Mondays through May 22, led by Pampi: Spring into AbunDANCE! Getting to know our meditative dance body” – A R

 

The Democracy Center‘s first Artist in Residence, Pampi, will be offereing a free dance series MONDAYS thru May 22 > Spring into AbunDANCE: Getting to Know Our Meditative Dance Body 6:30-8:30 pm

donations appreciated: $10-$20 per class, no one turned away

AbunDANCE is for anyone interested in exploring dance as a conduit for healing in community and its transformative potential at community actions and during street protest. This is a call for those wishing to connect movement building to responsive art making.

Though drop ins always welcome, try to make as many Mondays in the series as possible so we can learn the meditative dance body in community together. By the Summer series we will have the basics down in order to learn a full dance that we will be ready to present in the Fall.

this fb event will serve as a place to check in/converse/update even after the event “ends”.

Xplicit BIO
A near-20 year settler-resident of Massachuset and Wompanoag territories – the so-called greater Boston area – Pampi is a darker skinned gender non-conforming second genx casteD Bengali (S. Asian) person who acknowledges their complicity in erasing people who may identify as Afro and Asian and continued participation in anti-black anti-Dalit and anti-indigenous infrastructures, benefiting from so-called US birth privileges and a middle class upbringing, which allowed them access to matriculation from a recognized magnet public HS and an elite engineering school, among much other support. They have protectionist living parents who adore them and therefore struggle to understand and support them. They have endured childhood and workplace bullying, domestic and sexual violence, and struggle with mental and physical illness. Pampi is committed to channeling whatever resources they have access to for visioning with communities in love and liberation, breaking the numbing isolation that too is genocide. As a culture worker who flourishes the intersection of culture, social justice, healing and education, they help develop community-centered art that aims to release creative potential and drive collective change-making.
