DANCE WEEKEND IMMERSION

CONJURE MOTION MOVEMENT LANGUAGE

Connect, explore and express in community for 2 days celebrating the joy and magick in movement!  Learn and practice the Conjure Motion movement language format – a series of choreographed moves inspired by the ancient symbolism found in Nature. All experience levels, backgrounds, bodies, and genders are welcomed. Modifications can be provided for some physical limitations.

WHAT IS CONJURE MOTION?

The Conjure Motion movement language is a series of choreographed moves inspired by the ancient symbolism found in Nature: Fire (intuition), Water (emotion), Air (intellect), Earth (physical). You can use this format to create your own personal practice/rituals, and/or dance it with friends using group improvisational (ITS) concepts.  Read more about Conjure Motion.

“It feels like a dance because of the choreographed movements and emotional expression, but it also feels like yoga or martial arts with attention to alignment, mental focus, and subtle energy awareness.”⁠
