Thanks to a partnership with Elite Dance Company of Texas, I am proud to announce that we once again have live, in-person Awareness Through Movement classes in North Texas!
And the space is gorgeous.
This was not easy. Most establishments had to close during the Covid-19 pandemic, because they were too small to allow the social distancing required, too hard to clean between classes, or both — at a time when a lot of people who were at higher risk needed to shelter-in-place and minimize public contact. Most Feldenkrais Practitioners retreated online in order to survive.
Do I teach online? Yes! Every Sunday at 8pm, and if you’d like to wind down your weekend and clear out all the dross and stress while setting yourself up for a great work-week, I’d love to see you in that class.
But I have no plans to shift to a mostly-online teaching experience, and have been actively looking for a venue that was set up in such a way that in-person classes could be a thing. There’s little substitute for getting to smile at somebody across the room while practicing (or for everybody to do so when somebody snickers at my “Dad Jokes” during class). Safe Social Contact is a mandatory requirement for sane human beings.
And the space is gorgeous. It’s large, sunny-but-not-too-sunny, well-mirrored, and boasts a raised floor designed for dancers, so a single yoga mat or moving blanket is more than enough padding for most participants. The location is great, too, just off HWY 114 and O’Connor Rd. in Irving, and thus easily reached from almost anywhere in the Metroplex — click here for directions.
The one trick is that you park in the UPPER lot, which has lots of space.
Elite Dance was also founded during the pandemic, and thus has Covid-19 safety literally built into the business from the ground up. (But for now, please bring your own blanket or yoga mat, just to be sure)
Classes are every Sunday at 2pm: you can sign up for classes on Elite Dance’s website registration page. Please be sure to scroll down and select “Awareness Through Movement.”
It’s been a long year, and I cannot wait to help everybody move better, feel better, and think more clearly. See you there!
