Dancing in the Urban Wild is an opportunity to dance together with others in the wild(ish) spaces of south-east London.

There is a little simple, non-directive facilitation around the beginning and end of the dance to help bring each dancer into their body and to gather us into a group, and we sometimes work with a movement score – a structure for exploring a particular aspect of our dance experience. Beyond that, there is lots of freedom to be in any way in which movement takes you. Expect any of: dogs, parakeets, trees, earth, the occasional spectator, spontaneous altars, sounding, playing ...

There is a variety of music, generally starting small, rising to a crescendo and slowing to a pause. We use silent disco headsets.

All are welcome. Dance experience and aptitude are pretty irrelevant, but if you do have them, there’s space for you too. More important is the desire to move with nature and pay attention.

There is a dance only you can do, that exists only in you, here and now, always changing, always true. Are you willing to listen with fascination? If you are, it will deliver you unto the self you have always dreamed you could be. This is a promise.
