Dancing to Our Own Music

Back to classes

-For Kids-

Summer is filled with the sounds of playful creativity
In this all-day summer adventure, kids will learn about different flutes and wind-pipes/instruments. Everyone will assemble a PVC pipe of their own to keep. We’ll experiment how we can create and express music and rhythms with PVC pipes, our own voices and bodies. Then, we’ll spend time experimenting and expressing music with our instruments, with body language, elements of theater and movement/dance. As a group, we will create/compose an arrangement and a dance choreography to our own live flute/PVC pipe music. We will complete the summer camp week with our own performance for family members and friends.

Paint to Live Improvised Cello Music (Online Class)

Back to classes

-All Ages-

Paint or draw to live, improvised cello music, receiving a soul warming, magical atmosphere in a structured, meditative, calming environment. Focus and tune in with yourself, express your creativity in your art and recharge your batteries, while letting yourself be inspired by the audible experience! Supply your own materials and set up your work space for your project and we’ll meet online on Zoom for a connecting group experience.

  • Schedule & Registration info:
  • July 6 - July 9
  • 11:00am - 12:00pm

Additional Notes
- We will be meeting and interacting online through zoom. Please make sure you have your work space set up next to/in front of your computer, so you can hear the live music and see Sabina playing music as well and see the other participants making art while you are also visible (being filmed by your computer.)
- If you have any questions, raise your arms visibly. We will verbally interact at the start and at the end, and perhaps a few times in between. I will mute all participants during certain intervals of music making to minimize audible disruptions.
- Prepare an empty paper or canvas, watercolors (or other paint/crayons/color pencils or such) as well as additional tools as a waterproof table cloth, cup of water, paper towel, pen and eraser or whatever you might need.
- You will let yourself be guided by the music and don’t yet need to know what you’ll be creating.
- If you have additional questions, feel free to email me ahead of the start of the class: MissSwissBliss@gmail.

Best Wishes, Sabina

Good Morning and Freestyle Dance

Back to classes

-for Adults and Seniors-

In this morning dance class for adults, we will focus our awareness on our own bodies’ needs and abilities and we learn to move our bodies in new ways.

With artist Sabina Monn, participants will explore the personal ways that they express themselves by focusing on releasing held back energy, creating space to rejuvenate and find joy in their own bodies.

We will support each other in finding and expressing our own creativity through movement, and by becoming aware of our own movement patterns. To balance the outgoing playfulness, a few self-awareness and meditation exercises will broaden participant perception. Building playful connections and building community with others within the group through social interactions will be at the heart of the class. We will all get chances to experience leading and following, showing and observing as we practice to depict our experiences with the group and focus on listening to one another.
