GROOVE with Maria Gutierrez
February 22, 2017 10:00 am - 11:00 am
A.R.E. of New York Edgar Cayce Center, New York
Free-flowing Creative Dance for Everyone!
GROOVE CLASS is...
Authentic dance for everyBODY!
The GROOVE is an incredibly easy dance experience where you don't need to worry about following the steps or a leader. Everyone unites on very basic movements, and everyone makes those movements unique and their own!
Through creativity and community, the GROOVE is really just like an epic dance party! GROOVE focuses on expressing the whole self! Not only is it a great workout for the body, but the brain joins in the party through creativity and self-expression, and the being is satisfied through mindful practices, stillness, and breathing.
All participants must preregister at least 24 hours in advance. We reserve the right to cancel classes which don't show sufficient preregistration.
All classes in the series are $20, or $15 per class with a 10-class package deal. Class equipment will be available - or bring your own!
Instructor: Maria Gutierrez-Ferrar
As a Cuban-born girl from a family of professional Rhumba and Mambo dancers, Maria Gutierrez knows the power of music and dance. Her passion is sharing it with everyBODY! Maria became a dance instructor over 25 years ago and LOVES helping people find joy through music/dance. Teaching dance fitness 15 years ago, she realized how terrified people are to move their own bodies and researched ways to help students relax and actually enjoy the process. She found GROOVE by Nike Elite Instructor, Misty Tripoli of the World GROOVE Movement, and joined its mission of elevating consciousness through free-flowing expressive movement.
