Hello.  My name is Michelle (Sangeun Yeo).  I am from South Korea and I love dancing K-pop!  Previously I won first prize in the K-Pop dance contest in Washington DC, as well as in the several school festivals in South Korea.  I have directed K-pop performances for several festivals and taught K-Pop dance to colleagues when I studied in the USA.  I look forward to teaching you to dance to K-pop songs and sharing the enjoyment of this style of dance with you!  You will love the fun K-pop choreography!  Sangeun teaches completely voluntarily and all payments for her dance classes go to cover studio and administration fees.

Acroyoga- A crash course in Flying 
Fundamental Shapes & Flows of AcroYoga
Wednesday 10 May, 6:30-8:30pm
Join us for some fun and laughs as you learn to Base, Fly, & Spot the Fundamental Shapes and Flows of AcroYoga.  Moving through positions like bird, throne, and high flying whale, you can enjoy all aspects of the practice in a safe, progressive, & knowledgeable way.
AcroYoga blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of healing arts.  These three lineages form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust, playfulness, and community.  It may look a little complicated or scary, however anyone can do it and we will cater for complete beginners in the workshop.  If you’re new to AcroYoga or are wanting to build on your foundations, this is the workshop for you.  You will surprise yourself, guaranteed.

Acroyoga Washing Machines…so fresh and so clean.
Washing Machine and therapeutic flying workshop
Friday 12 May, 6:00-8:30pm
As the name suggests, washing machines will take you round and round, and upside down.  They are a continuous flowing sequence of poses that are linked through fun creative transitions.  With the starting pose and the finishing pose being the same, they are able to be repeated again and again without interruption.  Washing machines evolve into a dance.  The flyer gracefully floats, pops, steps, or rolls through the transitions as the base provides guidance and support.  Finding this flow together will cause laughter and an abundance of trust.  After the fun comes the bliss.  We will spend time giving and receiving the gift of touch through therapeutic flying and Thai Massage.  Your body won’t be able to help but soften and unwind as you are massaged and stretched into a state of full relaxation.  You will want it to last forever and will walk out floating on a cloud.

Threedom to Move
