Takoma Park MOVES in the new year

Takoma Park MOVES has become one of my favorite classes to both facilitate and take. And so it continues, this month with Stephanie Miracle! As most of you know, from both word of mouth and most likely your own experience, hers is such an inviting and challenging class. Simultaneously. There is time to really dig into material and discover the nuance and intricacies, and to let that have a more lasting impression after you leave the studio. At the same time, it invites one to find the challenge in what is presented, from wherever you’re comfortable. This is Stephanie’s last month in this class series until April, so come and get it while you can! Stephanie will be teaching January 4, 18, and 25. 10 to 11:30, $10. All ages welcome.

Note that Saturday, January 11, will be a special guest facilitator and a special time, to coincide with our Winter Institute (read more here). The artist will be announced as we get closer to the institute, and class will be from 9 to 10:30 on that Saturday only.
