Frankie Say Nia Birthday Bash

June 15 is my birthday.

The information about this playshop has been modified since this page was published. I edited the contents of this page to reflect the changes and I've also created an entirely new page. Please visit this page for the most accurate information.
To celebrate, I don't want presents or cake.  But I am putting together a playshop and I'd love for you to join me.

Frankie Say Nia is a classic Nia routine using all 80's New Wave music.
The focus of the routine is on Creative Arm and Hand Expressions and the intent is to Relax into Personal Power.

I have reserved the beautiful Century Ballroom on Saturday, June 13 from Noon to 4pm.


I want to start the day by doing the routine and then a bit of freedancing and a choreography jam. 

Part of what I'm doing this year is co-creating my next year's routine with communities across the country. Each community will choose their representative songs and then we'll play with them together until we come up with something that will end up as part of my 2016 routine. So, of course I want Seattle to be one of the represented communities. We will play around with the songs for a while and find the 'clicks' to settle on some choreography. I can teach a bit about how choreography is created, Nia style, or we can all share our insights for artistic creation.

Then I plan to do a Frankie Say Nia learn the moves session after we have created the choreography for next year. In this session I will not only be breaking down the choreography to the routine, but also offering lots of insight into how we use the focus and intent. I will show exactly how we use the Creative Arm and Hand Expressions and the concept of Form and Freedom to make Choices to Manifest High Magic and claim our Personal Power.  As a group, we can choose which song or songs from Frankie Say Nia that we want to learn.

 Here is a sampling of some of the choreography from the first song of the routine, "Cars" by Gary Numan.




I had originally intended to charge a fee for this playshop, but since it's my birthday I wanted to give it as a gift to the community. So please ignore the pricing information below. I will be 'passing the hat' at the event in case anyone feels they want to give a donation to the JAG & River Road Fund. It is not required, but it is helpful in assuaging the cost of gas and lodging while presenting my work across the USA.

Frankie Say Nia is a quirky fun routine with great, familiar alternative hit songs.

The cost of the four hour celebration is only $45. But if you sign up and pay in advance, you can get it for only $39.
