FRIDAY, FEB 7th - 6:30 -8:00 PM
ORIXA INSPIRED DANCE CLASS with RACHEL HERNANDEZ:
This class is an opportunity to move with intention, inspired by the mythology and the movement of Iemanja. Rachel teaches from a deep well of experience, both professionally and spiritually. Live drumming by Kahlil and community drummers.
In the folkloric spirituality of Bahia, Brazil - Iemanja is recognized as the Orixa (deity) of the ocean, the mother of all, strong and protective of her children, comforting them and cleansing them of their sorrows. She is associated with water, the moon, and is said to govern all things relating to women: childbirth, conception, parenting, child safety, love, and healing.
Her feast day in Bahia is FEBRUARY 2 - where the community, wearing white, processes to the beaches to offer respect and gifts in her honor.
Wearing white welcome, as well as bringing your intentions for the year. Your choice. All levels.
Interested in joining Sol Axe and diving deeper with the Extra Ancestral project? Kahlil Cummings is our guiding music director and we'll be working with this material for future performances for 2020!
Participants from either the drum or dance class (or both) are invited to come to the rest of February rehearsals with Sol Axe, held Tuesdays 6:30-8:30.
Both classes and all rehearsals held at Rhythm Industry Performance Factory, 1013 S Tyndall Ave
