Origins: In honor of Mother's Day the following day, we will explore moving from where we originated. How do we relate to the sensual nature that brought life to us all?

Inspired by Touch & Play, we present, Dancing with Eros, a monthly dance event, the second Saturday night of each month, with the explicit intention of exploring our erotic energy in the dance. Let’s explore for ourselves and together in community what it means to dance with Eros.

As a society, we have been acculturated to have shame about our sexual desires. In many dance communities in the country, we have struggled with issues of consent and sexuality in the dance spaces, so much so that many local dances seek to explicitly keep erotic energy separate from the dance. This is an invitation to allow and follow our intimate and erotic energy, with consciousness and care, consent and healthy boundaries.

Erotic energy is creative energy. Let your creativity flow. The focus of this event is to explore erotic energy through dance and movement. There will be a designated cuddle space. If your dance becomes slow and floor bound, consider moving to the cuddle zone. If you wish to bring your dance connection into a more explicitly sexual connection, consider making a date outside of the event!
