"I will be very happy to spend that Sunday evening with those, who want to enter into contact with themselves and the others throught the conscious movement and touch.
Body is an instrument which allows us to perceive and experience the reality here and now.
This movement-dance requires not only the technique of movement/dance, but also training of attention and cultivation of quality relationship with others. It's a great way to see, expand and transcend own limits." - Julija
Please, come with a wish or intention to make it come true!
13€ per person for the Class - &/or optional participation in the Sunday Jam Berlin &/or the Acro Fest Berlin
