Women of all ages, sizes, walks of life welcome! Trans-women welcome.

We can’t wait to see you there modelling your new fashions!

All leftover clothes will be donated to Dress for Success Oregon, an awesome non-profit that offers professional attire and coaching for job interviews for women. They use non-dressy clothes for a tag sale fundraiser, too!

Mother-Daughter Red Tent

with Susan Landa

Saturday, October 21 @ 10:00am - 12:30pm


Geared towards girls ages 9-15 and their moms, guardians, aunties, grandmothers, godmothers or older female friends.

In this event, we will have Red Tent ceremonial rituals, with a focus on what happens to our bodies both physically and emotionally when we enter menarche and become maidens. Part of the ceremony may include honoring those girls who have experienced their first moon and would like to celebrate and be initiated into womanhood. Please let Susan know in advance, if you would like a menarche ritual for your daughter.

Our girls deserve an enriching and empowering rite of passage for this very significant time in their lives. Let’s start them off on the right path: honoring their monthly cycles and cultivating a rich, powerful female identity.

You are welcome to bring something for the altar (that you will take home,) in honor of a female ancestor, or a talisman that you would like to have charged – whether it be a shell, a flower, a crystal, love notes or something else that speaks to you.

Date: Saturday, October 21, 2017

Time: 10:00am – 12:30pm

Cost: Tickets are for one mom and one daughter.
Register online: $25 through 10/20
Pay at the door: $35 per person, cash or check

An incubator for exploring deeper connection through co-created movement

Join us for monthly nights of movement education, dancing, and exceptional music in this nurturing connective space. While the common language shares the framework of traditional social dance, creative expression, authentic connection and play take precedence over form! We believe stronger communities form where life is celebrated in music and dance with one another and see dance as a language with the power to bridge interpersonal and cultural divisions.

Our intention is to provide:
*A welcoming, inclusive environment that feels safe and judgment-free
*A gateway into the partner dance world and creative expression
*A nexus for community and authentic connection

Each event includes an ALL LEVELS class that supports up-leveling dance connection and skills, and three hours of dancing, with occasional cutting-edge LIVE musical acts.

Dates:
October 21, 2017
November 11, 2017
December 16, 2017

Time:
Class: 9:00pm – 10:00pm (no partner or experience necessary)
Dance: 10:00pm – 1:00am
Community Social Time: 1am+

Cost: $12-20 sliding scale, cash only (class included)

Move The Earth: A Sensual Ecstatic Dance Class for Women

with Audrey Steele

Sunday, October 22 @ 6:00pm - 8:00pm


Move the Earth is about repossessing our wild feminine, reclaiming our sexuality  and freeing our creativity.  When we allow this, we begin to cultivate our limitless power…

Women hold immense power in our creative centers (aka: our second chakra or our womb space), but we are often in conflicting relationship with this place due to the immense cultural programming and collective trauma we all carry in and around our sexuality. We can feel hopeless, detached, numb, or like we are “too much.” This keeps us from having the lives we want and the kinds of relationships and sex we want. It keeps us from pursuing our dreams and embracing our talents. It holds us back from being the powerful women we are in our lives.  

Reclaiming our sexuality is imperative if we wish to find any sense of freedom, or power within ourselves. 

The emphasis of this series will be on developing healthy relationship with Self.

Each class in this series will be a journey diving into, and deeply exploring, our sensual expression through dance.  We will practice listening to our body, to what it desires, and to how it most authentically wishes to express that. In doing so, we will begin to reprogram our limiting thought and action patterns into more empowered ways of being.

WOMEN ONLY…
In order to eliminate the confusion, fear, frustration, and distraction that can sometimes occur in other mixed-gendered, conscious-dance practices, this class is offered to women identified people only.

The goal is to create a safe container where we get to play with this energy and express our sensuality freely. It is not about performing, looking good or pleasing anyone but YOURSELF.

What to expect …

Movement…  A large portion of the class will be our movement practice where you will be supported and encouraged to invite your sexual energy out on to the dance floor.

Depth… we will practice simple guided meditations connecting us with our womb space and with the energy of the earth.

Reflection… We will use the supportive practices of drawing and/or  journalling to help us see our process from different perspectives.

Challenge… While this class will be focused on developing deeper self-love, that will include pushing ourselves a little outside our comfort zones.

Fun… It doesn’t always have to feel like drudgery!  We will have loads of fun in this class!

The 7 phases of Move The Earth

Like 5-Rhythms, the music will create a “wave,” meaning, there will be a variety of music intended to evoke different flavors of our creativity, and authentic expression.  However, in this class they are specifically designed to evoke our sensual and sexual energies, sometimes referred to as Kundalini, Shakti or orgasmic energy.

The 7 phases are:
Depth
Opening
Confidence
Wild and Fierce
Grind and Grit
Play
Tenderness

THIS IS NOT A PERFORMANCE CLASS, HOWEVER…
We will end each class with an optional opportunity to be witnessed in our movement expression. When we practice celebrating and SEEING our sisters express themselves vulnerably, magic happens!  We begin to understand that we are all beautiful, powerful and unique and we then begin to accept, love and celebrate ourselves in this way as well.

What to Bring and Wear…

Please dress comfortably… AND you are also encouraged to dress in a way that feels sexy!  What ever that means to you. This class is not about looking good, it’s about feeling good. But it is also about pushing your comfort zone in order to discover how your sensuality would like to express itself.  It is an opportunity to turn a regular dance class into a living art experience!  Have fun with it!

Reflection… We will use the supportive practices of drawing and/or journaling to help us see our process from different perspectives.

“The momentum from your classes has kept going and I no longer have any difficulty seeing myself as sexy and desirable. I am finally dating again, but even more importantly I am happy being alone at home, too. Thank you for facilitating all the growth.”   –Former Student

It’s time to form a community of sisterhood and give voice to that which has been silenced for too long.

By coming together, we empower ourselves, and women everywhere.

We have. Come join us.

Red Tents are for all women. We honor our monthly cycles as well as the cycles and stages of women’s lives — maiden, matron and crone.

It is wonderful to see our sisterhood and community grow and it’s important to keep it growing!

Please invite friends, daughters, mothers, sisters, etc.
