Fun before Flicks: Free Class with Movement Lab

Fun before Flicks: Movement Lab at AVAM

A free class that blends the dance, martial, and healing arts.

  • Date: Thursday, July 25
  • Time: 6:30 – 7:30pm
  • Cost: FREE!
  • Where: Jim Rouse Visionary Center Plaza at AVAM

In the outdoor sculpture plaza of the American Visionary Art Museum, enjoy a free Nia (neuromuscular integrative action) class with instructor Amy Vait of Movement Lab. Nia is a sensory based movement experience that blends movement forms of the dance, martial, and healing arts (such as yoga). By moving and integrating all levels of the body—the base, the core, the upper extremities--through the intrinsic and extrinsic muscles, the entire body is given a workout; by honoring self-expression through movement, the spirit and emotions are exercised; and by challenging the nervous system through the steps and stances, the mind joins the dance.

Then, stick around for Flicks from the Hill, the museum's free, outdoor movie series at 9pm. The movie on Thursday, July 25 is Home Alone (1990).

Christmas in July Celebration

After your class, partake in a Christmas in July celebration. Available for purchase will be Union Craft Brewing's "Bling Universe," a summer seasonal IPL made exclusively in tribute to the museum. Plus, enjoy tasty eats for purchase from City Seeds and The Urban Oyster.
