(class) SPELL

SPELL into the shortest month // Come join us!

SPELL (South Portland Experimental Language League) is a biweekly-ish movement class at The Living Room. All levels welcome. No dance experience required at all!

SPELL is a place to: warm up, shake out, find a weird new move you like.
We play good music and laugh a lot.
We try out ritual to access new language/s.
We prioritize consent.

Engaging with movement through informal exercises and mirth, we focus on looking inward, exploring for ourselves. No routines to learn; nothing mirror-facing.

Class includes solo, pair, and group work, which is all opt-in. We begin slow, continue with up-tempo scores, and land in one or two longer, more focused exercises.

We also invite guest teachers to share their (vastly varying) practices by leading the main part of class. Reach out if this is you or your friend. Guest teachers do NOT have to be dancers or movement teachers! Visual artists, writers, therapists, educators, etc. all welcome to facilitate.

***Class is on a sliding scale of $8-$16. If this is a hardship, please still come! No one turned away.

***Note that The Living Room Dance is unfortunately not an ADA-compliant space. If you have specific accessibility questions, please reach out.
