HOUSING FOR THIS EVENT: There are lots of wonderful inexpensive places to stay in Olympia that are very close to the workshop venue. Please visit the Accomodations Page of the OlyWaves website for listings.

The space between us is fertile ground. It is a magical place that both connects and separates us. Whether it does one or the other is entirely up to us. It is physical- existing in real-time, real-space. It is emotional- spanning the depths of the heart. It is psychic- a drawing board for the imagination. In each and every moment we get to choose whether the space between us is open or closed, an intimate whisper or a yawning chasm, a playground or a battlefield, and everything in between.

Set right in the heart of summer, this weekend workshop features five amazing movement teachers, representing 5Rhythms, Open Floor, and Path of Azul, each with a unique offering on this year’s shared theme: The Space Between Us.

Each year we call together the greater dancing tribes from the four corners of the earth. As one we move through dance after dance, wave upon wave, opening and exploring the textures of our dynamic humanity. Our Gathering is composed of embodied dancers from around the world and a fabulous catered celebratory dinner together. Join new friends and old for a remarkable weekend of movement and discovery.

Marli Thibodeau- Path of Azul - Rockland, Maine
Marli is an artist and dancer using movement as a way of guiding people to connect with the source of their intuition, the intelligence of the body and the voice of the heart. In learning to allow our emotions to move through us, we create space for more energy, vitality and inspired creativity.  For her, dance is a spiritual practice and an invitation to live more fully into life.  

She grew up on Soul Train, spent a decade in a nature-based martial art, finally rediscovering dance and has been studying conscious movement ever since.  She is an artist and early generation Azul teacher working closely with founder Amara Pagano dedicated to knowing ourselves as love.  She is a lover of nature, light, and beauty living on the coast of Maine, traveling and teaching in the US
