A Community That Moves Together, Heals Together!
As our community navigates this time of social distancing it is now more important than ever to remember we are all interconnected, to offer support when we can, and to ask for help when we need it. This guiding belief has led Shila Tirabassi La Grua of Body Center St. Pete, and Helen French of St. Petersburg Dance Alliance, to join forces and launch A Community That Moves Together, Heals Together.
Starting Monday, April 27 the project will begin offering a variety of 30-minute movement classes over the course of two weeks, taught by the highly skilled staff of the Body Center St. Pete and dance educators from the St. Petersburg Dance Alliance. The schedule and instructions on taking classes can be found below, the suggested donation is $10 a class. Proceeds will be contributed to the Pinellas Arts Community Relief Fund at the Pinellas Community Foundation, whose goal is to ensure the vibrant arts and cultural landscape of our community remains intact through this emergency.
These classes are designed for a wide range of participants, because everyBODY needs to move. From dancers to donors, young to old, in pain and pain free. Class themes include; Proper Breathing, Balancing and Finding Security in Your Stance, Healing Chair Movements, Yoga for Neck and Shoulders, Releasing Tension using the Alexander Technique, and more. Let’s come together in movement and community to not just survive this crisis, but to thrive through it.
