Doonya: The Bollywood Workout

Afro-Indo Groove: Both African and Indian dance traditions contain multitudes of styles and influences. In this workshop, Aisha will lead you through her own original choreography that blends African and Indian movements with a focus on fluidity and repetition. Everyone will be a beginner, including Aisha herself, as we all adventure into this newly fused dance. No dance experience necessary. All bodies, all levels welcome!

Mother-Daughter Self-Defense and Assertiveness Training Workshops

Relationship and community are based on a fundamental sense of safety, and while we can all benefit from learning more about how to establish safe boundaries for ourselves, this workshop is an opportunity for Mothers and their Daughters to learn self-defense and assertiveness from Spirit of the Heart’s inspirational Nancy Rothenberg.

Based on the same curriculum as Nancy’s STRONG™ program, this regular workshop integrates a shared experience for multiple generations of women. Just like the general STRONG™ program at Ascendance, this workshop is free for families with students taking regular classes and $20 per mother-daughter pair for others.

Say Yes and Mean It!
