Groovetonic has changed it's name & location!

Groovetonic has evolved into Groove.Move and is offering moving meditations and free-form dance jams  @ Maple Street Dance Space in the Nob Hill area of Albuquerque! 3215 Central- inside/behind Peacecraft (which is across the street from Kelly's). This is a lovely space -warm & inviting! Lots of room to move! Fun area of town w/shops & restaurants all around.

Groove.Move Moving meditation- every Tuesday from 12noon- 1pm  $5-10 sliding scale donation
An opportunity to move to music however you feel drawn to move. Short intention given at the start while the rest of the hour is a non-verbal offering, letting the music take you on your own journey.

Inspired by the bell-curve pattern of the 5 Rhythms work of Gabrielle Roth and developed with a focus on how energy moves through the body, these musical journeys are quite magical! Come experience it for yourself!

And another offering:

Groove.Move-HOWL- 2 Fridays/month 8-10pm $10 requested donation- an awesome mix of music for your body and your spirit. This is a great way to release stress and have fun at the same time! A no alcohol environment w/sacred intention. Facilitated by Gya (Gay Rathman) with music from all over the world!  Upcoming dates: July 29th, Aug. 12th + 26th, continuing with 2nd & 4th Fridays.

All info on Maple Street Dance Space website as well!

See you dancing!

Friday, March 11

Big energy moving through us and our planet right now! I find moving freely to music helps me deal with all the emotions that go along with big events. Join me tonight for a GROOVETONIC dance journey to experience this for yourself!

I am so excited about combining the ecstatic dance bell-curve pattern of rhythms with a focus on how to move energy through the body! This is powerful stuff for powerful times!
