WHAT IS DANCE IN THE DARK? Firm Feet’s Dance in the dark® sessions can be a part of your regular meditation, dance or bodywork practice. It is simply a space to be, a place to dance without judgement. The sessions are set in a warm, lowly-lit, atmospheric and calming environment. You are invited to move in your own space, barefoot, with closed or lowered eyes. You can now practice in your own home with a new audio every week, subscribe here. In darkness, there is no visual stimulation, which allows us to drop deeper into meditation, finding our natural rhythm, calming and letting go of the mind.
MOVEMENT MEDITATION As we work on our bodies we are able to focus on a balanced mental and physical well being. Movement is a crucial stage of healing and personal development. People often come away feeling reformed, with a sense of liberation, purpose and self empowerment. Firm Feet® sessions focus on the self, going inward, enquiring inside and are considered a movement or active meditation. Moving your mind and body can help you reset, refocus and recharge. Dancing is scientifically proven to raise endorphins and serotonin which can boost your overall happiness and balance everyday mental health and stress levels. Dance strengthens the body, is a great low cardiovascular exercise, enhances balance, flexibility and agility and can even improve sleep.
FRESH MUSIC Each session will feature a carefully selected playlist. The movement can enable you to release stagnation, catharsis and create freedom of the body and mind. Focusing on deep electronic, experimental, drumming, ambient and uplifting music from all areas of the globe. You can reach exhilarating and euphoric highs through music, breath and your body. Charlie is a DJ and musician and always digging in the vaults for brand new, old and interesting music. The setlist will always be fresh. Check the sessions page for current event information.
