Our Evening will begin with fun, interactive game-like exercises then lead into instruction and exploration. Tzoul and Melissa will reveal the importance of touch, grounded embodiment, and communication.
There will be plenty of time for free flow dancing and socializing.

About the nature of this event:
Dance is a way to connect and experience non verbal communication.
Even if you are advanced, a beginner, or simply interested in an amazing way to connect, we are certain you'll enjoy closeness on the dance floor.

We all have something to share with one another through dance, non sexual touch, and connection.. so let's play and let self discovery unfold!

For this evening's dance experience, we're keepin it low and slow, giving space to drop in, breathe, touch, and connect through the heart, allowing us to go deep with each other through subtlties.

We will be playing with the archetypes of The Giver and The Receiver - creating space to truly feel both and notice how they interact.

Partner dancing doesn't require you to be perfect, it just asks that you show up- unconcerned about how cool your dance moves are:)
The dance instruction this evening will not just be about standing and breathing with someone while music plays in the back ground. Instead it will be a sweet and deep exploration, inviting you to connect with the music and other individuals while feeling sensual and deeply embodied.
When music is involved, it is easy for us to transcend beyond the physical touch experience and into soul connection and body telepathy. Groovy, sexy, deep, uplifting, and personal are all adjectives that we use to describe our event, "Dancing Real Close".

This isn't a dance class, we are instead training for an internal performance at the alter of our souls.

Meet the facilitators:
Tzoul has the fortune of being a natural dancer. Before 2008, Tzoul thought that he didn't need dance classes and that you couldn't dance to blues music. His position changed after connecting with the Blues Dance community in Northern Colorado in 2008. Partner dancing remained in the background of Tzoul's life until 2012 when it was made very clear to him that, in its variety of forms, it was his new life's purpose. To this date, Tzoul has taken a total of 524 hours of group partner dance instruction in 25 different styles. With a goal of mastering partner dance as a whole, he feels he is about half way there. He regularly dances Salsa, Bachata, West Coast Swing, Fusion, Kizomba, and Zouk socially. Tzoul sees partner dance as very meta and transformative in our everyday lives.
