Wassa Dance – Spring Tuning

March 28 – April 2, 2015
Kalani Oceanside Retreat Center – Big Island, Hawaii

Aloha Still Life 3:14

Join us in seeding a new season of our potential for ease and joyful vitality.
Come as you are, let the rhythms dance you deeper.

We will be
– cultivating fresh vibrancy in our physical wit and wisdom.
– immersing ourselves in afro-infused dance inspired by some of the best music the world has to offer.
– engaging our senses in the complex natural and cultural beauty that IS the Big Island. Ocean meets lava, mongoose, wild pigs, tree frogs, bird song, hula, solar power, compost, and not so far away strip malls all co-existing while Pele makes the newest earth in the world.

This sweet 5 night island style intensive features daily sessions of movement meditations and personal tuning leading into spirited dance segments in Wassa’s unique ways. Most afternoons and evenings are purposefully left open for participants to enjoy their own experience of the many delights and resources of Kalani and the island
