Weekly Wrap Up

Updated: Apr 11

This week we started playing with our new theme of "emergence". We talked bees, wrote a song, gave ourselves blues music personas, moved and shared stories!



In Robin Dann's class, we discussed "Emergent Structures".


Emergent structures can be found in nature (e.g., beehives) and essentially means: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.



We shared our thoughts on how/when we feel part of a larger whole. Participants said when feel part of something bigger when:


  • My feet are flat on the ground

  • I am in nature (Nature is like a cloak that drapes over you, that shelters you)

  • I am doing my exercises

  • I visit museums

  • I am looking through my window and I see a tree

  • I am digging my fingers in the dirt, I think about the potential for grass

We also created a song called "Tiny Leaves".



In Steve's class, we listened to and sang the blues. Robin G and the participants sang along!

We also created blues names for ourselves:

  • Scratchy Joe Blair

  • Big Mama Jan

  • Strawberry Jam Joan

  • Disaster Diana

  • Annie Rhythm

  • Big Daddy Koven

  • Lady Mid Afternoon



During Simon's class, we talked about the emergence of new life. When discussing the emergence of joy, Simon played this gorgeous video of a Flash Mob. Musicians gathered one by one and played Ode an die Freude (Ode to Joy) by Beethoven from Symphony No.9.




Robin Gertin presented a "story telling" theme in her class this week.


We shared who the first storyteller in our lives was:


It was also a treat to have Yvonne dancing while Robin played the guitar and sang.




We look forward to classes with you next week. Register here!




We also have a Virtual Open House event coming up on May 6, 2021 at 3pm where we will share a taster of the kinds of program we offer. Invite your family and friends and register here.
