Dancing on the way to Church!
Betsey Beckman

Seattle, WA

Tuesday Mornings once a month / 9:30 - 11:45 a.m. / Oct. 8, Nov. 12, Dec. 10, Jan. 14, Feb. 11, March 10, April 14, May 12

SpiritPlay has become a staple of Seattle’s InterPlay offerings! Now in our nineteenth year, we have developed a wonderful community of faith and foolishness. If you'd like to explore how the spontaneity of InterPlay interfaces with the tradition of Christianity - come on in! We'll be diving into the lectionary, exploring sacred stories, dancing through the cycle of seasons, loosening our tongues, singing our souls and improvising in prayer. Together, let’s open the doors to an embodied church!

Cost: $175 (paid in full) or $25 per class
