Viva Brasil! Frevo Dance

There are many styles of frevo dance, and our classes focus on street frevo. Dancer and scholar Kate Spanos will demonstrate and teach this fun, high-energy dance using the methodology of Mexe Com Tudo (Otávio Bastos) of Recife, which highlights individual expression and challenges traditional aesthetic standards in dance.

BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE (so much more)! After creating one dish, "Yes, Chef!" your way to a plethora of reinventions and remixes to bring you a week's worth of healthy and scrumptious meals from that humble beginning!

Breath-Body-Sound

Dive into an immersive experience via grounding the body through art, sound, meditation, and more. The flow of this workshop provides focus and calm to the participants, so they walk away with tangible techniques to better their mental health. The program is circular: breath (meditation), mandala-making (art), then group reflection on the process of making the art and its emotional effects. Jeanne Marie will then lead her sound session, and another art-making experience will stem from the effects of the sound on participants, followed by a group discussion and closing breath.
