SBRN Virtual Empowerment Series and ZCO/Dance Project Presents:
Experience expressive movement exercises that will lead each participant on their own personal movement journey. The aim is to find physical expression to your feelings, whereby greater understanding and healing can begin. Zazel's creative movement workshop aims to bring peace in this time of chaos, where everything seems to be out of our control. She hopes to provide a space for safety and healing.
This creative movement class will begin with a series of exercises designed to awaken the spine, center and pelvis. Next, engage in more technical exercises that support proper alignment. The class will culminate in rhythmical, full-bodied movement combinations that incorporate detailed gestures and diverse dynamics. NO prior dance or movement experience is necessary... just an open mind.

"I have attended every amazing performance featuring the ZCO/DANCE PROJECT. What an incredible dance company spearheaded by a wonderful and selfess talent, Zazel O'Gara. It is a showcase of courage, vulnerability, and trust. An audacious collaboration of strength and freedom. As each artist shares their story and wears their joy, each member understanding of their own humanity. The ZCO Dance Project is awe-inspiring! And I look foward to their next performance as they, once again, invite us to love one another, soul-to-soul." -Jacqueline Jones, Flower Designer, Owner of Gardens Blooms
"Zazel O'Garra is a true inspiration! It begins with Ms. O'Garra's personal story of her tenacity and overcoming obstacles. What she has created with her company is equally inspiring. She and her company embody the joy of movement and tell an authentic human story with their bodies. It makes you rethink your perceptions about what is dance and what makes a dancer. The dancers in the ZCO/DANCE PROJECT with their full potential, and they express so much more with their bodies and spirits than a perfect pirouette or arabesque can. My friends and I cried tears of joy during the performance." -Sherry Kohn, Nurse Practitioner
