WHAT WE ARE
Electric Nomad is a dance hive comprised of a variety of participants: dancers, artists, educators, parents, makers, movers, and activists as well as organizations and individuals who support inclusive art focused on building community and empowering one another. Dance teaches us how to work together while building strong bodies and spirits, alive with expression and universal truths. We welcome and encourage a diversity of ethnicity, gender expression, age, body, and ability at Electric Nomad. We believe that the common threads between us all, such as art, dance, music, food, and celebration are the foundations of positive togetherness. We believe that our shared human experiences can build empathy, love, and a brighter future for everyone!
This new incarnation of our studio at 123. E. Main St. comes almost a decade after our first studio started. In time, we've grown into an artist's space that seeks to integrate many facets of the work we have done both as Illumination Dance and as Electric Nomad. While we are rooted in dance and movement, we are also a visual art space. You will find work from local artists, handmade items for sale, and enjoy live music and performances, as well as classes in acting, burlesque, theatricality, visual art, and even herbalism. And this is just the beginning! We intend for this new space to be super-collaborative, with an emphasis on providing an awesome space for folks to teach, share, learn, and explore something new. How would you like to participate at Electric Nomad?
Dear studio family,
We at Electric Nomad have been paying close attention to the current COVID-19 pandemic, and are taking this very seriously. We had made the decision to cancel all upcoming group classes and gatherings for a month, and were preparing for two months of closure, however, we are sorry to share that we have had to close our doors indefinitely due to stay-at-home orders, and mandated closure of specific types of businesses.
Social distancing is one of the greatest steps we the people can take immediately to slow down the speed of the spread of this disease, lessen the burden for our medical community and carers, and to protect our most vulnerable citizens. We wish to be proactive in this very important action.
**UPDATED in APRIL--
• THINGS TO KNOW •
• We will no longer be holding classes or meetings in this space.
• While we had plans to offer prerecorded and/or livestreamed classes to be available for online learning, this has not been possible. We are starting to share other classes and events given by our wider community on our Facebook page.
• If there is a way that we can help you, please let us know! We wish to be as available to our community as possible during this time and always.
We are going to make it through this! We look forward to seeing you out in the community when it becomes safe to do so again.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call or text me at 804-549-3982, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take this time to drink lots of water, take care of yourself and others, and dig into your creative potential!
We thank all of you so much for your support over the years, and for your love of community, dance, and art.
Yours in Love, Twila
