Hot Pot annual Xmas workshop – Free Dance class! @ Hot Pot Studios
Dec 25 @ 4:20 pm – 8:00 pm

freexmaswksp

Remember you have somewhere to be for Christmas Day December 25th! Dance in the front and dice in the back! And…. festivities start at 420pm. Workshop starts at 5pm and it’s FREE! And… we have a special guest teaching with UNMATA this year! Ashley López!Amy Sigil.

Feel free to bring pot luck goodies to share after our class time.
Happy Xmas!

The FREE Xmas workshop story.
I did not celebrate December 25th for a very long time, so this day was always free for me. The world would shut down and I had the day to work and dance and organize. UNMATA began scheduling rehearsals because everyone was home. One of these December 25th rehearsals everything changed for us. Our studio is on the street level of a multi story building. As we were rehearsing we heard screaming and people running by the windows. We stepped out to find that a woman from our building had thrown herself out of the 7th floor window. It was a brutal reminder that these holiday hurts are real. That people feel alone on these days.
So the Hot Pot community promised to open our doors every December 25th to the Sacramento community and beyond. To hold space for those who need it. Its not a religious gathering. It’s a safe space for dance, friendship, games and escape. We know we can’t fix things in the world, but we’re here for you if you need a place to be on this day.
UNMATA will be teaching together, and we have a special guest with us this year too! Ashley Lopez!
We are here if you need us!
(please share if you know folks that need a space)
