Dancing in the Park
with Hannah Romanowsky

Join us for a spacious and refreshing dance circle under the trees at a park in central Marin County CA Wednesdays 4-5pm. We will dance traditional and folkloric dances from Central Asia and the Middle East. No experience necessary and all levels are warmly welcomed. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a blanket to sit on for stretching and chatting afterwards.
In order to maintain safe physical distancing attendance will be limited. Contact me to reserve your spot and I will give you our location.
For thousands of years -long before gyms and dance studios- people gathered outdoors to dance together. They danced in times of joy, and they danced when in need of healing. Their movements were in relationship with the geography and natural environment around them, and one another as a community; whether shuffling through sand, balancing gingerly on rough terrain, or being filled with the inspiration of towering mountains and rushing creeks. Let’s continue this tradition and dance together in the trees and the breeze, appreciating our need to connect with one another and the elements of nature.
This weekly class celebrates traditional dances from Morocco, Egypt, the Arabian Peninsula, Iraq, Turkey, the Balkans, Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, India, and beyond. Tap into the ancient human legacy of dance, nourishing your spirit and gaining a deeper appreciation and understanding of cultures far and near.
