(e)merge: a movement based healing intensive for dance communities and beyond+
You're invited to (E)MERGE: a movement based healing intensive for dance communities and beyond
(e)merge: a movement based healing intensive for dance communities and beyond+ is an intensive sponsored by What's Poppin' Ladiez? x 206 Zulu x Moonyeka that will be exploring:
~ How to honor ourselves and the histories we stand on in Street Style Culture
~Addressing appropriation through dance/movement (based in Black/Latinx, Street/Club Styles practices)
~Healing through somatic body-based practices
Folks who are holding this space include Stacy Torres, devon de Leña, Dani Tirrell, Naomi Macalalad Bragin, and Moonyeka.
What's Poppin' Ladiez? is deviating away from the standard structure of battles and showcases to center on having more spaces and conversations towards our individual and collective healing.
This event takes place at Washington Hall. There is a ramp on 14th avenue at the front of the building. Through the doors and all the way through the hallway is an elevator that will take you to the 2nd floor. Two flights of stairs are also located to the right of the front entrance. We ask that folks come with no scent/fragrances.
Q: Do I have to be a dancer to attend?
A: No. What's Poppin' Ladiez?! has historically served the local and national Street Styles community, so there may be an influx of movement based people present. It is not required for you to have ANY "dance" background. The intensive serves to explore and have conversation in healing based ways, specifically around themes of: consent, values, anti-blackness, honoring histories and so much more. You *will* be moving and experiencing your body in different ways, so please come prepared to move.
Q: Do I have to attend the full day?
A: We require folks to stay for all three workshops as learning will scaffold and deepen throughout the day. We have a commitment to hold a consistent space to allow folks to access their vulnerability throughout the day. There will be (3) 1.5-2 hours workshops with breaks in between.
If you really want to make it but cannot stay whole the time please email us.
Q: Is there food provided?
A: There will be some light lunch available and some snacks, we encourage bringing what you need <3
Q: Is there a registration process?
A: Yes! Please stay updated via this page, we will be posting it shortly
