Medicine Dance is a physically, mentally, and spiritually exhilarating, verbally guided, often music-accompanied movement experience that identifies present moment thoughts, feelings, and sensations and invites them to be expressed through the body.
In a Medicine Dance class or workshop, we dance from the inside, out. There is attention on Self, time with partners, and time with smaller and larger groups.
Every participant has the option to work individually, in the belief that our most significant partner is our Self. No dance experience necessary.
“In dance we find solace, connection and a sense of mending and wholeness within the movement we see on the outside, and the movement that we can feel on the inside. Our desire and our practice is to join in with that movement which is occurring inside of us, in our deep inner cave that is so personal and so private that words become inadequate to describe. Why describe? Because we want to share, we need to share; we discover our own and each other’s magnificence and brilliance and unadulterated being alive and it is not possible to not want others to taste and smell and feel what we have discovered. Witnessing each other, we get that opportunity; a glimpse of the Other and of our Self…” – Fred Sugerman, Founder
Medicine Dance offers ongoing, weekly classes at locations throughout West Los Angeles, California. Join us to work individually, with partners, in smaller and larger groups, and add the intention of exploring the “space between.”
To delve a little deeper and longer in the movement, we invite you to attend a verbally guided, most of the time music-accompanied workshop – explorations of capturing present moment thoughts, feelings, and sensations and allowing them to be expressed through the body.
We provide cutting-edge programs away from home that support better relationship with self, other(s) and all relations, immersion into the work, over longer time in environments removed from the ordinary and predictable. Current immersions take place in Northumberland, England, and on the Big Island of Hawai’i.
