Nia is a fusion movement form that has so many benefits along with being great fun. Here’s a music clip with rhythmic music that’s well filmed and will give you a flavor of some of what I love about Nia—though I have not danced in a plaza in a large city yet.
At the beginning of this dance clip is some black and white filming of Portland, Oregon people moving toward Directors Park.
Here are some fun things to watch for during this dance break: the variety of people dancing together—women, men, and children, young, old. Zoom in close-ups of feet dancing and panoramas of the large group dancing together. Their faces and bodies tell you: joy of movement! This is one of the things that I love about Nia.
This is a dance break that was filmed with Debi Rosas, co creator of the Nia technique, dressed in all black with silver jewelry; Caroline Kohles, to her left from New York City, dressed in black and white; and Kevin VerEecke to her right dressed in long sleeved t-shirt and black jeans. The song is "No Quiero Nada Mas" by Sancti Spiritus, which is a featured track on the NiaSounds CD "Aya." Visit NiaSounds for more music.
Enjoy the music and the fun of people dancing Nia together and find a class near you!
