Dancing with a Tabouret (Stool)
This workshop will feature learning a delightful dance using a stool as a prop to French-inspired music. Also, you will learn techniques and ideas for using a stool as a prop in your performance.

Bring a stool without a back or arms. The seat should be in a circle shape. A good gauge for stool height is if the balls of your feet (or more) can touch the floor when you are sitting on the stool. It does not need to be a fancy stool - see picture.

Sensual Empowerment
Outside of what many people think of as sexual, there is a whole Universe of sensual exploration: From breath, touch, energy exchange, to empathic experiences where we barely touch. The way we flirt, walk, talk, carry ourselves, and maintain eye contact can also carry our sensual power in every day situations. How do you own your sensuality? How do you embody it?

This workshop will have guided visualizations, movement, body and emotional mindfulness, and other therapeutic elements. Elmo will present her research and work regarding the benefits of expanding our sensual and emotional comfort zones, and the potential impact on your emotional and interpersonal life.

Elmo is a Body-centered Psychotherapist in Chicago, IL, and is currently in the Somatic Experiencing certification program through the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute. Her role in this life is to be a Muse, an emotional healer, and an implement of whimsical awakening.
