BeMoved Free Workshop with Christopher Dodson
BeMoved is an established dance experience designed by Sherry Zunker for adults of all movement abilities. With 18 unique dance genres, BeMoved inspires participants to embrace dance as a lifelong path to health, joy, and fulfillment.
Christopher Dodson will be running this free workshop, and it is open to absolute beginners. If you’ve ever thought about trying dance, this free workshop is the perfect stepping stone to all that dance can offer.
The Warm-Up infuses breath and movement through choreographed, artistic sequences that activate core strength and balance while improving flexibility and coordination. The Genre section of class uses continuous, engaging dance combinations to inspire anyone from first-time dancers to professionals. Finally, the Cool Down brings your workout full circle, leaving you balanced in mind, body and soul – feeling rejuvenated.
After training in Perth at TPC & WAAPA, Chris spent the next 10 years performing in the USA, UK, Europe, China & Australia in various theatre production shows, cabaret & circus spectaculars. He joined Royal Caribbean International as an Associate Director for a Mystery Theatre program, leading him to becoming the ‘Entertainment & Guest Activities Creative Producer & Director’. In this role he created brand new entertainment concepts for the Quantum, Anthem, Ovation, Empress and Harmony of the Seas.

Dance was always his souls calling & passion & he was thrilled & elated to be invited to Chicago by BeMoved’s founder Sherry Zunker as her guest to train in the methodology of this truly beautiful & wonderful movement.

“I discovered that BeMoved was so much more than a ‘dance class’ it was a life style choice where the benefits were endless. In a class you are given the chance to find your groove within your own ability. I never knew a “dance class” could make me feel so alive again. BeMoved challenged me to be a better me, physically, emotionally & mentally. I am more in touch with me now than I have ever been, inside & out. Mind, Body & Soul. I’m smiling now as a better me, & it’s because BeMoved found me”
