Creating Community & Connection through Movement
We are sharing 7 donation classes a week, live-streamed from NC.
Our hearts are with those suffering most in these challenging times. We are living in unprecedented times, and we know that many people are in need of support. We are all in need of self-care right now (including us!). Because of this, we will continue to offer our ShaGa classes online by donation ($0-$5 sliding scale) to help movement and healing reach bodies and souls around the world. As a way to provide connection and community through movement, we are offering 6 ShaGa classes and 1 Mindfulness Movement & Meditation class per week! Classes are open to ALL people throughout the world. We invite you to join us in this gentle practice as we heal together and reimagine our world.
In ShaGa, we move from our body, the ultimate refuge. We allow our bodies to become our teacher and our healer. ShaGa is a movement practice of self-discovery, healing, and awakening to our deeper resources. It opens us up to the capacity to experience movement as a source of healing and vitality. We discover that by inhabiting our bodies more fully, we are able to more fully inhabit our lives.

Classes are entirely donation-based and we encourage those who are able to give what you can. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. All donations will go directly to support our ShaGa Teachers, who are without financial security in these challenging times.
We know that many of us are experiencing financial challenges right now, so we also appreciate your help in simply sharing our fundraiser, inviting your friends and family, or leaving comments to share your experience with others. Help us share this healing practice with the world!
ShaLeigh Dance Works denounces white supremacy, racism, and racial violence.
ShaLeigh Dance Works acknowledges the pain and morning our nation is experiencing and extends our solidarity to Black people, their families, and communities. We have witnessed the undeniable impacts of systemic racism on the lives of individuals who are Black, Indigenous, immigrants, LGBTQ+, and live with disabilities. We stand with those working to dismantle all forms of oppression and intentionally invest time, resources, and energy into building a reality founded on equity and justice.
