Open Floor is a dance mediation practice. Using core movement resources such as grounding, centering, releasing, our aim is to become more embodied, to be more comfortable in our own skin, present for anything and everything. When we live an embodied life we are fluid, flexible and free to experience all of the wild and subtle moments that go by, the ones that are heavenly as well as the ones that have us dragging our feet.

How do we use dance to be fully embodied?
How do we make the most of this one short precious life?

What to bring:

  • Bring your own water bottle
  • Wear comfortable clothes to move in
  • Dance barefoot or in soft-soled indoor shoes

Dancing in the times of Covid. Steps we have taken to ensure the safety of the group:

  • More airflow through the dance space – windows are kept open.
  • We have minimised contacts around transactions, by using contactless payments.
  • Hand sanitiser is available.
  • We have reduced the possibility of contact through sharing water jugs, participants bring their own water bottles.
  • If participants are shielding or are in contact with people who are shielding they are asked not to come.
  • Participants come at their own risk.

Tickets are available through www.eventbrite.co.uk at: Open Floor Forest Row

  • Please bring your own water to drink to reduce sharing the water fountains
