Notes About This Event
Get a sneak peek of Nia's newest routine, Touch!
Join Portland-based Nia Trainer and choreographer Allison Wright as she shares the basic moves and story behind each song of Touch. Open to EveryBody (students and teachers) this playshop will provide you with a fun and relaxed community setting to go deeper with the routine, enhancing your movement skills and making you feel even more successful when dancing the routine in class!
Touch takes you on a sensory journey through the body using four touchstones: skin, breath, eyes, and sound. Each touchstone provides you with places in the body to anchor your attention as you dance a soundscape of mantra, thick beats, and vocal harmonies. Increase your awareness of sensation using meditative hand mudras, vocal sounding, physical touch, and by making visual connections as you dance.
Touch is a collaborative routine between Vickie Saito and Allison Wright, both of whom will be returning September 20 - 22 to offer a 2-day Touch Routine Immersion Weekend!
