About the facilitator
Lauren Pass Erickson is a somatic counselor and dance/movement therapist who specializes in helping clients develop their intuition, authenticity, and resilience through body awareness and expressive movement. She’s trained in a variety of dance styles including tap, jazz, ballroom, African, and aerial, but over time has grown away from dance as performance and into dance as a form of internal exploration and healing self-expression.

Notes For New New Participants – Please Read
We recommend that your device is in good working condition. An up-to-date computer laptop is best for visuals and an immersing experience as you can see more of the virtual dance space. However, a tablet and mobile phone are fine to use if your WiFi is stable. Make sure to close all other applications on your computer to avoid any interference or slowing down of your Zoom connection.
Quality external speakers, in-ear, or a headset with a cable to connect to your computer. Using a cable connection is more stable than using a Bluetooth signal. Any good smartphone earplug will work fine.
Internet cable or a stable WIFI signal
A stable internet connection is necessary for the best experience. We recommend connecting a cable directly from your internet router to your device if possible. Make sure you turn off all other devices in your location to avoid slowing your internet.
Find a private place for your session
Please make sure you can not be disturbed by household members or pets and turn off any phones that are not being used. Prepare your room so that it is contained, comfortable, and risk-free and has enough space for you to move your body safely. Also, make sure that you can have more time after the session to rest and be still.
