Dance Your Naked Truth with Cloe Jackson and Michelle Crozier at The Loft at Little Dippers, BRIGHTON
A wildly liberating ecstatic dance journey from fully clothed to fully naked (optional). This is a place where you can express yourself freely. We gradually shed our layers of limitation which are represented in each item of clothing and with them goes our fears, doubts, shame, inhibitions and repressed emotion. This is a process that invites you to turn you pain into power and your grief into gratitude. The space is held as safe and sacred and the dance process is guided, but there is no choreography, no shoes, no drink or drugs, no judgments
