Moving Prayer logo    

All are welcome to this friendly community dance practice. There is a little facilitation and lots of time just to dance. More about Greenwich Moves is here.

Time: 11.30am–1.30pm. Doors open 11.15am and close 11.45am.
Place: Greenwich West Community and Arts Centre (main hall), 141 Greenwich High Road, London SE10 8JA.
Travel: 3 mins Greenwich overground / DLR station; 177 stops outside; 53, 180, 188, 199 and 386 stop nearby. With the ongoing works to London Bridge station, there are sometimes no trains on the Greenwich line on a Saturday; however, there are usually plenty of trains from London Bridge to Lewisham. From there you can get the DLR – three stops – to Greenwich. Lewisham mainline and DLR stations are in the same place. This will add about 15 minutes to your journey. As ever with Saturday travel, check TfL / South Eastern trains before you set out.
Cost: £13 / £11 low income / £7 concessions. No booking necessary – just come along. To decide which rate is appropriate for you, please read the Fee Policy.

NO CLASS on 26 August (bank holiday Saturday), when Greenwich West will be closed.
However, I will be running a Dancing in the Urban Wild on this date – Greenwich Dancers welcome. More information is here.

16 September: The Meditation Cycle
The Open Floor Meditation Cycle is a structure for embodied sitting, walking and dancing, offering you the opportunity to move in different ways and to sit quietly and reflectively. People often find that their dance is deepened by the periods of attentive stillness. Sitting can be on the floor or in a chair. You are encouraged to sit fluidly, allowing shifts and mirco-movements. The cycle has a ceremonial feeling, but what happens within it may be wild, anarchic and unrestrained. As usual, you are invited to come as yourself and be in whatever way you need to be. We will move through two cycles and finish together in a circle. No booking necessary – just come along.
