Join Design Dance in Austin, TX as we bring a transformative weekend to students ages 13-17! We'll be hosting three days of events learning how dance, yoga and writing help us to accept ourselves and others.
Saturday, April 22nd, 10:00-11:30am - Family Yoga @ in.gredients (2610 Manor Rd.)
Join us at local grocer in.gredients for a free Family Yoga event! We'll stretch, balance and relax as a community. All ages welcome!
This event will take place on the in.gredient lawn space, so we will cancel if there is rain! Please bring your own yoga mat, blanket or towel to participate.
Sunday, April 23rd, 9:00am-5:00pm - Acceptance Day @ NYOS Charter School (12301 N. Lamar)
Join us for a full day of workshops culminating in a community performance for students ages 12-17. Our day will begin with a discussion and exploration of qualities and intention setting, followed by yoga and meditation. Students will work with our Poetry instructor to create writing on the topic of Acceptance. After lunch, students will meet our Professional Dance Instructor who will teach choreographic foundations and then lead students through the process of turning their writing into original dance. By focusing on self and group exploration, students will gain confidence, courage and self-awareness leading up to their final performance (5:00-6:00pm) for friends, family and community.
This event is $10 per participant. Previous dance experience is not required.
Monday, April 24th, 6:00pm - 8:00pm - The Art of Self-Acceptance: How to Love Yourself While Growing Your Career @ Congress WeWork (600 Congress)
Join us for an intimate conversation about the delicate balance between self acceptance and career growth, moderated by Design Dance Founder/Director Debra Giunta. We'll enjoy food and cocktails while sharing ways to better encourage a healthy self-image as changemakers and entrepreneurs in the Austin community. Adult age 21+ welcome. We're excited to welcome Sourced Craft Cocktails to this event!
