2023 SPRING MOVEMENT CLASSES WITH TANYA LEE
10 week session ~ April 18 to June 22 ~

I love Springtime! It’s that time of year when activity increases and all of life engages in new exciting adventures, exploring possibilities and sparking the internal fires of inspiration. It’s time to come back to life after a long winter!!! 

This Spring we have 3 types of classes and 4 class times/week. Descriptions below.

Please Note:  Class space is limited to 15 students and classes often sell out.  Full paid registration secures your spot (payment plans also available). Early Bird saves you 15% until midnight March 19th , 2023.  Bundling classes saves you more too!  Registration details and tuition chart is posted at the bottom of this page. Class Location: Near Telus Spark at Evergreen Community Spaces 1709 8 Ave NE

TECHNIQUE & CONDITIONING  
Tuesdays & Thursdays 7-7:55pm

Each class will be a new movement adventure with rad tunes from the depths of the EDM underground! If you are new to the Conjure Motion style of movement, this class is where it all starts! Focus on the basic biomechanics of the Conjure Motion style: fusion dance influenced by EDM culture, bellydance, yoga, martial arts, bodybuilding, sigil style, hula and ancient dances from the cradle of civilization. Learn more about Conjure Motion.

If you love to geek out on technique, hangout with down-to-earth humans, and would love to be guided through unique body-mind-spirit adventures each week, then this is your class! These classes are full-body explorations that can be modified for beginner to seasoned movers.  All levels of experience and all genders are welcome. We recommend registering early as these classes usually sell out.

RITUAL DANCES
Tuesdays 8:00pm – 8:55pm

This class is for people who have some previous experience with the Conjure Motion movement style. (min. experience of 10 weeks in technique class or attendance at a full weekend immersion).

Ritual is a term synonymous with systemized practice development. “A series of actions performed according to a prescribed order”. In this class we explore how to practically use the Conjure Motion movements to create personal and group dances that connect us and unify body-mind-spirit.

Most ancient and cultural forms of dance were/are practiced as a form of communication/connection for a particular purpose or acknowledgement such as fertility, healing, celebration, or protection. In this class we cover the theory behind Conjure Motion, how the moves connect us to the 4 elements of Fire, Air, Water and Earth, and we will experience how they are practically designed to flow with trance states often induced through the modern signatures of Electronic Dance Music genres.

PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE  
Thursdays 7-8:55pm + Sat. Jun. 17th 11am-1pm
Show Date: Sun. Jun. 18th at Jack Singer Concert Hall
