Creative Aging Classes

This class allows participants to experience the joy of movement in a nurturing and supportive environment and helps unlock the creative dancer in all of us. Dance brings together physical and mental energies in a unique way. It sparks fresh creativity for individuals and inspires new interactions within groups. We all have knowledge about how to move, have stories to tell and we all can learn from witnessing each other's movements and stories. No dance experience necessary, all levels welcome, physically challenged people can feel welcome to participate as well.

February 3, 10, 17, & 24, 2017 from 10:30 - 11:30am at the Good Shepherd United Church of Christ in Suhuarita, Az.

For more details contact the instructor, Nanette Robinson, at 520-903-1962 or nanutdancer@gmail.com

Testimonials from Mirasol clients (all anonymous):

This class is inspiring and utterly amazing, allowing me to freely express whatever I happen to be feeling that day.  It has also finally pushed me over the edge to find a dance company when I get home.

ZUZI! makes me feel free. I enjoy it because it is something I have never done. I really enjoy liquid grace because I feel most free and at peace in that pose.  Also walk-run-fly is fun.

ZUZI! Dance has been one of my most positive experiences at Mirasol.  It has given me back the expression I had as a dancer. It helped me work through trust and comfort levels. It makes me feel free and strong. I’ve really enjoyed all aspects.
