Breathe + Groove
A Series of Movement, Meditation,

This series of videos was created to share with elders who we've collaborated with at Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center as a way to stay connected in the pandemic. This series of short 10 minute media features yoga, meditation and line dancing.
Thanks to our partners at Lincoln Center Education for their support with closed captioning and editing for the Breathe and Groove series. Content available in English and Spanish. We invite you to Breathe and Groove with us.
Our education practice manifests through four core activities: Technique Class and Rehearsal, Community Workshops, Lecture Demonstrations, Professional Development. Hire our experienced facilitators to share our process with your community.
We have adapted relevant workshop modules to take place digitally, allowing us to continue to facilitate creative spaces amidst a time of global transformation.
Reflection and writing is major part of the SLMDances process.
