Housekeeping: Guidelines and Thank You
Thank you for being such a wonderful community of awareness and exploration. We so enjoy the ways you show up!
First off, there are some guidelines that we want to be sure everyone is aware of, for all of our dancing safety and pleasure:
Shoes - in general we prefer that you dance barefoot, but if you must/want to wear shoes for support etc. they must be soft soled shoes that do not risk hurting other dancers or the dance floor.
Shirts - everybody, regardless of gender, is required to wear a top that covers at least their nipples while dancing at Coalessence. It is important to us to have a gender neutral policy on this issue, and this feels like the safest place for the time being.
Noisemakers - please do not use noisemakers of any kind, including instruments, at Coalessence, unless you have been specifically contracted by a facilitator to do so. This includes rattles, bells, ankle bracelets, etc. The soundscape is a very intentional piece of Coalessence, thank you for respecting this.
AND, a note of gratitude: Things have been going much better at the Vet's Club, as far as us making space for the dance that comes after and others who use the building. Let us not become lax as a result, but we wanted to thank you all for being so responsive. You rock! We rock! Let the dance go on!
In gratitide and joy,
the Coalessence facilitating team,
Grace, Paul, Oblio, Zan
Between what we have come to know and what we may come to know...
...touch this moment,
these sounds, sights, sensations,
these motions and emotions;
touch the earth and the sky,
