Move in the heart of rhythm
with this lively, accessible mix of traditional and contemporary poly-rhythmic styles. The simplicity of the format invites each dancer to cultivate their own joyful, personal experience inside roots oriented group movement.
Customized daily for mixed levels, each class deepens movement skills, cultivates strength, ease and nuance, while tuning into well being with some of the best music the world has to offer.
Wassa Dance acknowledges that we are on the traditional land of the first people of Seattle, the Duwamish People past and present and honor with gratitude the land itself and the Duwamish Tribe.
"The simple complexities of Lara’s Wassa Dance have kept me coming back for twenty plus years. I feel more invigorated than I did in the beginning. It may be her constant innovation or her remarkable playlists or her steady acceptance. When I find myself humming a stray tune during the day, it’s often from her wide-ranging playlist. Satisfaction abounds on all sorts of levels."
