Debbie Rosas brings you the original flavor and inspiration of Nia, and ever-evolving movement form that blends dance, martial arts and healing arts, such as yoga and Feldenkrais. Nia is soft on the joints, warming up with smooth, usually slower movements, then working up to full cardio-aerobic exercise for participants who want to push their fitness envelope. The cool down offers opportunities to strengthen, stretch and balance. Debbie sends you out the door feeling regenerated, uplifted, ready to take on life with vim!

Dare to Dance speaks to anyone who always wanted to dance, make their own dance and, if desired, present it at a show in Still & Moving Center at the end of the series. It also gives dancers who have never choreographed a space to make their first dance piece. In the Dare to Dance workshop preceding the Dare to Dance series, we start with a nice movement warm up and proceed to dance improvisational structures to source material to exercise our choreography skills.
