Nia is at Taste of the Danforth this weekend ~ both Saturday and Sunday.
Are you coming?
THIS WEEKEND! Saturday Aug 8 & Sunday Aug 9.
If you would like to practice prior to stage time, please join me at class at Joy of Dance (95 Danforth Ave, 3rd Floor) on either Saturday 9:45-11am or Sunday 9:45-11am for class.
Please note that this it is NOT mandatory that you come to these classes if you are planning to join in the dance.
Our time on stage is just like a class in public - NOT a performance. The point of the demonstration is to show that Nia is for everyBODY. So we're not aiming to do anything other than show a fun, JOY-full experience through Nia!
Nia is on stage on:
Saturday 1-2pm (please arrive at 12:45pm ~ you'll need to get your Tshirt and temp.tattoo - see below)
Sunday 11am-12pm. (please arrive at 10:45am ~ you'll need to get your Tshirt and temp.tattoo - see below; note that our class at Joy of Dance will end a few minutes early to accomodate this demo)
Taste of the Danforth. Broadview and Danforth stage. If you need an address, look for 95 Danforth Ave, just east of Broadview. That's where Joy of Dance is and the stage is just outside. It's BIG! You won't miss it.
Getting there: Best bet is to TTC or cycle or walk to the area on that day as driving can be a bit crazy! If you need to drive and are coming from a distance, contact me and possibly you can park in my driveway or on my street (about a 5 minute walk away from the action).
We'll be dancing. You'll be at a class on stage. That's it. No stress.
I will have pink "I LOVE MY BODY" Nia shirts for you to borrow/wear at the demo.
I have a variety of sizes, so no worries - I'll get you outfitted.
Here are a few photos of the shirts so you get an idea of what they look like (they're from the dance parade in NYC in May!).
***IF YOU HAPPEN TO HAVE YOUR OWN PINK "I LOVE MY BODY" SHIRT (I know some of us do), PLEASE BE SURE TO BRING IT ALONG AND WEAR IT****
Solid Black/dark bottoms are great to wear along with the shirts.
You, me, and others (a mixture of Nia students and teachers) will be dancing on stage. What a thrill to share JOY together in public! Being in the moment and with the dance (and on a stage) can be a real THRILL ~ I hope you'll embrace the excitement of it!
If you'd like to bring a friend, PLEASE do ~ the more the merrier! No RSVP required...
I am asking for the weather to be fantabulous this weekend, however please keep in mind that these demos are happening *RAIN OR SHINE*. Be adventurous if the weather is precarious. It's part of the thrill!
