In these challenging times, we’re incredibly heartened by the community surrounding Frame Dance. Together, we know we can accomplish anything. Even COVID-19 can’t stop our mission to give the people of Houston a physical, intellectual, and spiritual connection to themselves and each other, offering a safe place to explore creativity and experience challenging, artful, and undiluted modern dance.
Our annual fundraiser was scheduled for June 18, and we are hoping to move the event to October 15, 2020 if it is safe for us to gather together. If you would like to be a part of the event, please reach out at anytime. We would be honored if you’d consider helping us out from the safety and comfort of your home.

Join Frame Dance and Carolina Vennie for a socially distant Intro to the Subtle Body & 7 Chakras class on Zoom!

Date: November 1, 2020

Time: 11am – 1:30pm

Intro to the Subtle Body & 7 Chakras

According to yoga philosophy, we are composed of several energetic layers that are often hidden beneath our physical bodies. In this workshop, we’ll explore the 7 chakras,  energy centers that govern everything from our sense of grounding and stability to our ability to love with others, voice our opinions freely, and connect with our intuition. Through discussion, movement, and meditation, we’ll explore and balance each of these wheels of energy in your body.

Intro to Yoga

This workshop is designed for students who are new to yoga or interested in deepening their understanding of the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of the practice. During our time together, we’ll discuss the general philosophy of yoga, introduce the most common yoga postures, and explore adjustments/modifications to help students practice them safely in a group setting. We’ll also touch on the breathing and mindfulness techniques that differentiate yoga from other forms of movement.

Slow-down. Self-care. Explore the connection between breath, voice, and body in an uncensored environment of creative play. We’ll engage with gentle warmups and exercises which are springboards for speaking, singing, and are foundational in bringing all creative projects to fruition. We’ll also check in with each other about challenges, triumphs, strategies and solutions in our creative lives. No experience needed. The work is accessible for all body types and abilities. This is not a ‘singing’ class! Who is this for? Artists and creatives or anyone interested in being more present with their body, breath, and voice.
