You CAN meditate while moving. Paige Tighe will lead the group in simple meditative dance exercises with a focus on being present in your body. These exercises will both center and energize you! This all-level class will start with walking meditation exercises followed by some blood-pumping African beats and improv dance movement to get you warm in the January cold.
Paige Tighe is currently exploring the boundaries of public and private meditation with a concentration in disruption. This manifests in her collaborations in postmodern dance with Christine Suarez and the mentoring of Hana von der Kolk. She has danced at MOCA, beaches, the Hammer, public parks, buses, and RedCat. She is a part of Pedestal & the All Girl Band which is a mobile karaoke unit and a public art persona. Her favorite media are dancing and video, sometimes together, sometimes not. She is the inaugural post-grad curatorial fellow at the Ben Maltz Gallery under the tutelage of Meg Linton.
