About the Event

Below is a description of the group in Sue's own words, followed by some practical info.

‘And The Beat Goes On is an ongoing group intended to accompany us through our lives, creating the possibility of spacious dancing support over a period of time.  We’re building a community of dancers who are willing to practice dancing deeply, playfully and seriously, seeking to expand our ability to be spontaneous, honest, responsible and real – alive in our bodies, courageous and true in our hearts and generous and receptive in our minds.  We dance and dance and dance again and we also use words and other means of expression to explore and share more about ourselves. We’re creating a place to try things out, to play and work together, to make mistakes and discoveries.

We mess up – and mess in, dancing with our fears and fantasies, simplicities and shames, strengths and weaknesses as we find ways to be more responsible and free. We can learn, sometimes exhilaratingly quickly, sometimes painfully slowly, to accept ourselves more and to see ourselves and one another with increasing respect and pleasure.  Many of us were born into a group, mostly were in school in a group, often work or live in a group, and sometimes feel isolated from any group – so we get myriad opportunities to practice dancing with all our ordinariness and extraordinariness, being challenged and supported by the tribe that we create.

Each term we begin with a weekend together, followed by five evenings.  A space becomes available if someone leaves, when others may then join – always starting with a weekend.  A commitment of two terms is required to begin, which may be extended, term by term, indefinitely. My intention is for this to be a group that can change and continue, available as an ongoing presence in our lives, enabling us to explore our relationship with ourselves, in one to one and in tribe, using movement as our bedrock.’

The next term starts with a weekend on 15/16 Jan 2022 followed as always by 5 Thursday evenings. The prices are: standard £320 / low income £265 / concession £210 (for under 21's, full-time students, people recieving benefits and over 65's) Sue requests that the minimum commitment be 2 terms to allow a sense of continuity for the group.

The three price tiers are £320, £265 & £210.
