Shift Dance Auditions @ Impact Performing Arts

Shift Dance is a non-profit dance company based in Gaithersburg, MD. Shift uses dance to explore the intricacies of movement – what initiates a movement and what effect does that initiation have on the body, the mind, the spirit? Shift looks at these mental and physical movements, sometimes subtle and sometimes extreme, which keep us moving and growing and creating.

Auditions are open to adult dancers with minimum 3 years dance training. Auditions will include technique work in ballet, jazz, contemporary, and tap styles. Please plan to stay for all styles, even if you do not have training in all 4.

Shift Dance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization. Potential members must be willing to participate in fundraising efforts.

Accepted members will attend rehearsal on Sundays from 3-6 pm at Impact Performing Arts. Performances TBD.

An Afro-Diasporic View of Holistic Herbalism with Olatokunboh Obasi @ Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center

Africans have the oldest plant medicine and healing art practices recorded in the written word and predominantly passed down through oral traditions generation to generation. Today, many descendants from Africa living in the diaspora have preserved knowledge and healing wisdom that has contributed to Western Herbalism and mainstream medicine alike. Similar to the mainlands of Africa, these herbal traditions have been transferred through oral traditions and reserved within family lineages. It is of great importance and sternly stressed that plant medicines are delivered with art and science in mind. These components of life within plant medicine cannot be divided. Moreover, plant medicine and healing arts are hardly separated. They are a married dynamic optimizing greater outcomes of spiritual and physical health. This discussion seeks to impart multiple plant medicines commonly used in the Caribbean via West and East African traditions and to fully discuss, define and emphasize some of the important aspects of art and science from an African perspective. We touch on the importance of storytelling, mindset around preparations, spirituality and how quantum science can create dialogue and forum to explain spiritual experiences.
