Just Dance - Vancouver
2114 W. 4th Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia V6K 1N6
A journey into the heart is where we meet ourselves within.
The beat that pulses is alive and is asking us to listen. The deeper we plant our roots to our foundation the higher we can go. The rhythm of nature and the rhythm of our human heart is a guide for us to access infinite awareness. Laura Ahava will hold a loving space for your heart to be the guide. Dj medicine fox will be sharing his music and drummer Navaro Franco will be playing live to set the foundational beats. Through dance, sound and a taste of sacred cacao we will move to the rhythm of our heart and create an embodied experience for everyone. See you on the dance floor ;)
