Event description

Description

SOL Dance Experience is an hour long, LIGHTS OUT, free-form dance session for women of all fitness levels.

It’s about FREEDOM:

Because when no one – not even you – can see you, your inhibitions fade away.
When was the last time you danced like no one was watching?

No more self-consciousness, judgments or social worries. In the dark, you’re free to move your body however you want or need to.


It’s about RELEASE:

Just an hour of SOL reduces stress, clears mental blocks, energizes your physical body, and lifts your spirits.


It’s about FUN:

Bored of your cardio routine? Part dance party, part workout – we play a mix of eclectic dance tunes (changes weekly) designed to get you moving in different ways to different beats. It’s not your typical “workout”.


It’s about EXPRESSION:

We provide you a safe place to express yourself at your own pace, your own way: dance, sing, laugh, shout, cry, punch, kick, stretch, it’s your hour to be in your moment, in your power. You’ll leave feeling strong and exhilarated.


You’ll LOVE SOL if:

You’re bored of your workout routine and are looking for something new to add in.
You’re feeling stuck creatively or emotionally.
You like to dance, but aren’t crazy about people seeing you.
You enjoy loud music.
You don’t love to “exercise” but want/need a cardio workout.
You want to feel great about your own body.
You miss the nights out dancing with your girls!

FAQs

  • Is it really dark?
    Yes. Total darkness. You may see a shadow here and there, but for the most part you’ll be immersed in darkness for the hour. You’ll feel safe. And you’ll feel the supportive energy of the SOL mates around you.

  • Won’t we bump into each other?
    Nope. We’ve got that worked out.

  • What is “free form” dancing?
    It is, very simply, dancing in your own way. No instruction, planned steps or moves. Most of the hour is without choreography, so no memorization, no expected form or sequence and nothing to distract your mind from how you want to move. Therefore, SOL is not a dance “class”, but a dance session. Halfway through the hour, there is a guided workout and the session will end with a simple dance routine. You can follow along, or not. No one can see you!

  • What kind of music do you play?
    Our music (the SOL MIX) is compiled mostly of current pop/dance hits with R&B, rock, hip-hop, Latin and world music thrown in and is different every week. The Mix is carefully curated to get your body moving in different ways, to a variety of beats, to evoke different results. *Please note that we play the music LOUD. If you are sensitive to loud music, you may want to consider bringing earplugs.

  • What does “SOL” stand for?
    Although the word SOL, pronounced “SOUL”, has several meanings – the latin name for the sun, a planetary astonomer’s term for the duration of a solar day on Mars, “Summer of Love” and, as some like to remind me, “Sh*t Out of Luck” (only if you don’t dance with us!) – our choice of word SOL refers to the Nordic Goddess of Light.

  • What do I wear?
    Wear whatever you feel comfortable moving your body in. This is a great workout and you’ll most likely work up a good sweat. A few notes: Don’t wear anything made out of glow in the dark or highly reflective material, as this may interfere with the darkness of the session. Most women dance in tennis shoes or bare feet.

  • Should I eat before?
    We suggest not eating anything heavy for at least 2 hours prior to a session. And best to limit your alcohol consumption prior to a Session.

  • Is it for all fitness levels and ages?
    Your SOL Experience will be as strenuous as you want it to be. You’ll dance on your own and at your own risk. While the point is to dance without limits, we ask that you please keep in mind your own physical limitations and stay within what you know is safe for you. Due to the variety and nature of music, we have an age limit of 15+. We will consider a mature tween, if accompanied by an adult. Please message us to discuss.

  • Can’t I do this in my own living room?
    As long as your phone won’t ring, your dog won’t bark, you can get a hold of an empowering SOL music mix, your room is completely, totally dark, you won’t bump into anything, your kids won’t interrupt you and other women with amazing energy will join you for a magical, transformative hour – then, yes, you can.

  • Can I bring a friend?
    Yes! Or come alone. Due to the darkness, SOL is an individual experience, in a room full of women. You’ll want to share it with your best girlfriends.
