Unleash Your Voice Workshop Series with Briget Boyle
Jun 18 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Unleash Your Voice Workshop Series with Briget Boyle @ Telegraph Room

Join Briget for the fifth edition of the “Unleash Your Voice” workshop series.

Briget’s teaching philosophy is centered on the power that is found through discovering your own voice and having fun while doing it. In this six-week workshop series, Briget will focus on Eastern European singing techniques and how they can be applied to folk and popular styles from other regions. She will discuss and demonstrate how to develop a personal, confident, and healthy vocal technique, as well as how to perform effectively alone and in groups. At the end of the series, students will have the opportunity to perform some of the material learned in the workshop. Through unleashing our voices together, we build confidence and freedom of expression while connecting with other human beings.

*BONUS: Briget is offering a discounted private lesson ($15 off) when you register for the full series. You will have the opportunity to schedule a lesson once your registration is complete.

COST: Full series: $165; Drop in: $30


Briget Boyle is one of the preeminent vocalists in the Bay Area’s Balkan and Eastern European music scene. After performing with Kitka for nine years and renowned Balkan brass band Brass Menažeri for ten years, Briget went on to form True Life Trio with fellow Kitka alumnae Juliana Graffagna and Leslie Bonnett. Briget is also a solo singer-songwriter and began writing her own music at the age of 12.

Sprint with Nana Duffour
Jun 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Sprint with Nana Duffour

Presented by Nana Duffuor and directed by Dazié Rustin Grego-Sykes, Sprint is a powerful stage performance blending film, theater, poetry, music, and dance to tell the coming of age story of Nana—a queer black child of Ghanaian immigrants, discovering herself (and her dignity) in White America.

In the era of #BlackGirlMagic, Sprint begs the critical question: “What happens when magical black girls break?”

Based off an original screenplay and collection of written works, Sprint explores the writer’s experiences of anti-blackness and self-denial, sexual violence and self-destruction, healing and resistance. From Nana’s first act of resistance (urinating on the classroom floor of her detested sixth-grade teacher) to the letter she pens to her rapists ten years after the event, Sprint draws on Nana’s most hilarious and at times horrifying life lessons to inspire healing and empowerment.

First Church of the Last Dance: Summer Solstice

First Church of the Last Dance: Summer Solstice
After taking a brief break, we’re back! This summer solstice celebration will center what is good and growing in ourselves and lives — so please, join us for a night of revelry and reflection!

This church is a little bit different.

Rather than centering any one religion, the First Church of the Last Dance instead focuses on the power of congregation, connection, and the idea that, in many ways, how we cultivate our faith in each other is a community collaboration.

And remember: no god required.

Gather: Doors open @ 6:45pm

Break bread: dinner and discussion @7pm, BYO bite or beverage to share.

Listen: Sermon (“The Reach Manifesto”) by Rose Crespo.

Sing: song circle to be led by TJ Rockwell.

Dance: DJ’d by the one and only Ally Yancey from Portland, OR.

Come together to build each other up.

Suggested donation is $10+, but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

Questions? Want to get involved or volunteer for set up? DM Rose or April.

Moving To Love
Jun 24 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Moving To Love

✨A Dance Journey to Reclaim Pleasure and Joy Within Your Body

Cultivate self-love with mindfulness, movement, and embodied practices. This women’s workshop is for anyone who desires a playful, deep, and joyful experience in discovering what brings you pleasure.

With light guidance and gentle somatic exercises, you’ll explore subtle movements with curiosity and gently begin to reclaim sovereignty of your body. Together we’ll tune into the power of a community practice in a private and safe space.

What you’ll receive from this workshop:

*Practices to expand your body awareness
*Tools to get in touch with your desires
*Learn to express your boundaries and needs
*Discover ways to create self-love and pleasure
*Community support in a contained space

The Women I Work With:

✨THE ORGASMIC WOMAN IS..

Ready to invite love, joy and pleasure into her body. She is beautiful, intelligent and independent. She is curious and knows there is more to life than meets the eye. She is on a mission to live life to the fullest and realize her innermost desires.

✨She knows she is bigger than her story.

She is caring, kind and generous but sometimes wants to be more unapologetic. She is an active and engaged member of her community and believes in leaving a positive footprint wherever she goes. She is fit, healthy and a lover of nature. She treasures moments of stillness and she is learning to do less.

✨She wants to self-pleasure but she feels disconnected and gets bored easily.

She is aware of her conditioning and is ready to break free from old patterns. She is serious about her self development and is always finding ways to grow. She knows her sexuality is suppressed and that she is not embodying her whole truth. She finds it difficult to orgasm and she is ready to do the work to move beyond these blocks.

She feels like there’s something missing in her life. She is not fully satisfied and she feels empty and exhausted post-intimacy. She feels insecure in her relationships and wants to learn about her attachment style to cultivate healthier partnerships. Her physical boundaries have been crossed and she’s ready to reclaim sovereignty of her body. She knows there is more to be discovered and she’s committed to her journey while following her heart.

✨She is ready to uncover her orgasm.

Deep down she knows that her sexuality is connected to her creativity, happiness and life force. Her sexual energy is what adds richness into her life, career and relationships. She is a sensitive, powerful, spirited bosslady. She wants to explore her sexuality in a fun, playful and safe container. She wants to reconnect with her body, discover what turns her on and learn to communicate her desires.

She knows that she can’t carry on with the way things are. She is awake and needs to create positive change right now. She is calling in support from a guide who understands her. She is ready to hire a coach to help her remember the orgasmic woman that is already inside of her.

IF THIS FEELS TRUE FOR YOU THEN YOU ARE AN ORGASMIC WOMAN ❤️

Sliding Scale $20-35

*No-one will be turned away for lack of funds, please message me to inquire about scholarship opportunities.

✨THE ORGASMIC WOMAN IS..

Ready to invite love, joy and pleasure into her body. She is beautiful, intelligent and independent. She is curious and knows there is more to life than meets the eye. She is on a mission to live life to the fullest and realize her innermost desires.

✨She knows she is bigger than her story.

She is caring, kind and generous but sometimes wants to be more unapologetic. She is an active and engaged member of her community and believes in leaving a positive footprint wherever she goes. She is fit, healthy and a lover of nature. She treasures moments of stillness and she is learning to do less.

✨She wants to self-pleasure but she feels disconnected and gets bored easily.

She is aware of her conditioning and is ready to break free from old patterns. She is serious about her self development and is always finding ways to grow. She knows her sexuality is suppressed and that she is not embodying her whole truth. She finds it difficult to orgasm and she is ready to do the work to move beyond these blocks.

She feels like there’s something missing in her life. She is not fully satisfied and she feels empty and exhausted post-intimacy. She feels insecure in her relationships and wants to learn about her attachment style to cultivate healthier partnerships. Her physical boundaries have been crossed and she’s ready to reclaim sovereignty of her body. She knows there is more to be discovered and she’s committed to her journey while following her heart.

✨She is ready to uncover her orgasm.

Deep down she knows that her sexuality is connected to her creativity, happiness and life force. Her sexual energy is what adds richness into her life, career and relationships. She is a sensitive, powerful, spirited bosslady. She wants to explore her sexuality in a fun, playful and safe container. She wants to reconnect with her body, discover what turns her on and learn to communicate her desires.

She knows that she can’t carry on with the way things are. She is awake and needs to create positive change right now. She is calling in support from a guide who understands her. She is ready to hire a coach to help her remember the orgasmic woman that is already inside of her.

IF THIS FEELS TRUE FOR YOU THEN YOU ARE AN ORGASMIC WOMAN ❤️
