WHAT’S A MoMo CLASS LIKE?
Special Guest Kara Nolte talks about her experience at a MoMo Community Dance Class!

I attended Momo’s Thursday morning Community class facilitated by Yvonne and Jade. I walked in five minutes late, terrified that I would disturb the serious playground I was about to enter and be scolded by the appointed guides of the class. Instead, I was greeted warmly; the class participants were making their way into the space with laughter and chatter. There was a calm feeling in the room. I felt welcomed. Yvonne and Jade provided clear, detailed instruction on the ideas we were to explore, and demonstrated strong leadership while allowing inspiration to blossom. I got to dance with each and every person in the room.
When I left my face hurt from smiling! Thank you!
importance in lightness
together we trace a circle
safety amid shapes
close, medium, far
exploration of the space
gently past the known
a grand fall morning
learning from friendly strangers
structured care from all
