We're Jammin! 
“Do a loony-goony dance 
'Cross the kitchen floor, 
Put something silly in the world 
That ain't been there before.” 
- Shel Silverstein

For those of you that came to my birthday mix class this past Sunday, you've seen my loony-goony dance. It was delightfully silly to create this mix in the hopes of sharing it with you. I selected just a few songs from the past forty years that have a specific memory attached to them that warm my heart or make me want to dance. These songs are woven into a routine with a couple of songs from the Nia routine, Sexi. I am calling this birthday mix "Lucero." Lucero is my family name and translates to "bearer of light" in Spanish. I hope you will join me as I teach "Lucero" again this upcoming Saturday, October 17th at 9:30am at The Dance Space in Greenwood (come early to find parking)! I am subbing for the wonderful Emily Dolan and you can drop in for $15 or use your class card with me! I may even teach it again on Sunday morning at Balance Studio in Fremont but reserve the right to mix it up ;)!  

We are also in the second week, of four, of ArcanaDance. We've been exploring the Dance of the Emperor. All are welcome to ArcanaDance. You can drop in anytime. Our next classes this week are tomorrow night (Thursday, October 15) at 7:00pm at the gorgeous 1200 square foot sprung floored Embrace the Moon in Ballard (see photo) and then Sunday, October 18 at 9:00am at Balance Studio in Fremont. If you come to Ballard on Thursday evening, street parking is free after 6:00pm and there's plenty of parking on 17th and on NW Market (especially across the street from the studio). I am exploring adding a daytime Nia: Moving to Heal class in this space in the coming months! 

Below are some upcoming events and classes I hope you will join me/us for:

ArcanaDance: The Dance of the Emperor
Thursdays at 7:00pm in Ballard and 
Sundays at 9:00am in Fremont 
For this 4-week series, we will delve into the fourth card of the major arcana in a tarot deck; the Emperor. The Emperor is the archetype of the masculine leadership. He represents authority and “father figures.” The Emperor invites us to apply logic, reason and strategic thought to build a strong and stable foundation for the empire of our lives.

Thursdays, 7:00pm – 8:20pm
Dates for the 4-week series: October 8, 15, 22 and 29, 2015
Location: Embrace the Moon (Ballard), 1716 NW Market, Seattle, WA 98107
Cost: $15 drop-in or $55 for the series
Sundays, 9:00am – 10:20am
Dates for the 4-week series: October 4, 11, 18 and 25, 2015
Location: Balance Studio in Fremont, 418 N. 35th St, Seattle, WA 98103
Cost: $15 drop-in or $55 for the series

Each week we will explore, through dance, how the archetypal energy of the Emperor influences our ability to step into a leadership role in all four realms of our lives. We will have the opportunity to sense where we need to strengthen our mind, body, heart and soul in order to exert the personal power, authority and control needed to become the ultimate architect of our lives.

This is a wonderful archetype to explore if you want to invoke greater discipline and strategy in your work or with a creative project, or if you are ready to put necessary boundaries in place towards healthier living. Imagine what can emerge for you from giving yourself the gift of four weeks to explore your capacity to build and lead!
