We are so fortunate this week to have Sylvia Buck Bryant leading a session where we will all participate in one of the amazing pieces – Go Down Moses – from her book “Dancing the Spirituals” Sylvia will take us on a journey of discovery with music, movement and mystery! And if that’s not enough – we are very excited to have Marque Smith (from London, Canada) who will join us and gift us with a live rendition of the piece.
Sylvia will provide a brief history of the spirituals and why she created this wonderful resource. We’ll then warm up our instruments and move on for an interactive session exploration of “Go Down Moses”. Marque will provide some historical context, we’ll learn Sylvia’s choreograph to the chorus and 1st verse, we’ll explore through improvisation and our own creative expression and will have time in small breakout groups to exchange and move together!
The Sacred Dance Guild is blessed to have Sylvia gifting her presence with us leading this Sacred Sunday session. During this time when our lives have changed in ways we couldn’t have imagined, continuing our personal, collective and global mind/body/spirit connection is so important. We are grateful for those who lead us on these journeys of discovery as we dance on waves of grace together. We will be using ZOOM for Sunday’s sessions. It is a simple and accessible program with no cost to participants. It can be used on a desktop, laptop, tablet or even cell phone. If you have not used ZOOM before join in a few minutes before 7:30 pm for a quick download prior to accessing the session. Using ZOOM you can hear/see the facilitators and choose whether others can SEE and HEAR you by turning OFF and ON your audio and video.
