Liberated Booty is a movement methodology that explores the kinetic application of fertile radiance in our bodies as mothers and women. It invites participants to become hyper-present with the abundance of their own embodied creative powers, and to engage their dancing body as a generative site for identifying and actualizing their wildest fertility dreams. In this class there’s plenty of booty shaking, elevating, rotating, and praising to go around! Learn more about Liberated Booty!
scheduling your classes
All classes are by-appointment and posted on the monthly calendar as they are scheduled. You can choose from a class that’s already posted or let us know your preferred days and times, and we’ll set a new class on the calendar.
We appreciate everyone being considerate of the time and resources it takes to produce our programs. We ask that you kindly give us no less than 24-hour notice if you need to reschedule your class. We understand that life happens sometimes. Please understand that cancellations received less than 24 hours before your scheduled class may result in the forfeiture of that class.
Preparing for classes at our home studio

Please direct your folks to register for classes for themselves; please don’t give out our address.
Children are ALWAYS welcome in our space.
Children must ALWAYS be accompanied by an adult.
Bring your babywearing materials if you want the option to wear your baby while dancing or playing capoeira. It’s always up to you, and babies are welcome to move through the space too.
