This intensive will explore the intersection between desires and boundaries, light and shadow, dance and sex, kink and conscious sexuality. We will foster an atmosphere of deeply permissive witness so you may experiment with your desires (however taboo) within a womb of shame-resilient acceptance. We will practice speaking and dancing our fantasies – without expectation – and then practice welcoming the gifts of gratification or rejection that ensue from being heard in our true desires.
Here we will create opportunities to traverse the landscapes of sternness and softness, dominance and submission, punishment and reward, pain and pleasure, power-over and power-under. We will use these kinky avenues to subvert and transmute our shared cultural pain surrounding sexual violence into one of reclaiming our choices and multifaceted lusts.
Throughout this experience we will be dancing – relishing in the subtleties of our dynamic bodies and how we can arouse exciting new pathways though conscious, unadulterated, and un-self-conscious movement. From this focused place we will seek to find greater attunement to the desires of our fellow dancers with whom we might come into contact. Our venture will culminate in a juicy group improvisation followed by a community constellation of integrations, feedback, and appreciations.
No matter your experience with dance or kink or sexuality I strive to clear an accessible path for every participant. This is no competition and no desire too bold nor too tame to explore. We seek to find our edges – experimenting in growthful discomfort – not to rush past them. All bodies, minds, races, backgrounds, orientations, and expressions are welcome here and all boundaries will be heard and respected.
