That being said!!

All are welcome to come out and enjoy HEAL & RELEASE Boston, our beachside healing village & festival. Join GetOpen Sessions, Urban Sanctuary, Lift As We Climb, and Be Free Radio as we cultivate wellness and community through holistic disciplines, art, movement, and music.

Every year that we can gather is special and this one is no different. Holistic and wellness professionals from multiple disciplines will provide services throughout the day. Some of the opportunities available include yoga, meditation, herbal medicine, exercise, and dance workshops designed for all fitness levels. There will also be visual arts installations and kids' activities provided throughout the day as music fills the air then the festival closes with a family-friendly DANCE PARTY on the beach!

We're so blessed to be able to have the best team of local wellness professionals & dynamic DJS as we continue to support the Boston wellness and house music communities.

Scroll down to learn more and plan on bringing the entire family, spending the day, and experiencing it all for yourself. Our little gathering has grown over the years so prime parking has become limited. Arrive early to secure yours or lower your carbon emissions by car pooling. We'll have light bites & refreshments on site to keep you going. We encourage you to pack your tents, coolers, picnic baskets, blankets, beach towels & especially your dance shoes!

Dana E. Fitchett is a multi- and interdisciplinary artist, committed to pursuing liberation through creative expression and community-building. In addition to her work in dance, visual art, and writing, Dana has over a decade of experience in schools and community-based organizations. Her practice is rooted in excavating the subconscious—listening out for rather than intentionally crafting output. Dana splits her time between the Northeast and the Bay Area, holds an AB in Urban Studies with concentrations in Sociology and Africana Studies, and is currently pursuing an MFA in Interdisciplinary Art, exploring identity reconciliation and decolonization through creative practice. Her explicit concern for moving our individual and collective realities closer to liberation is the thread that unifies all of her creative and professional pursuits.

Groovement Dance Workshop

Groovement is focused on finding your individual sense of groove and comfort within the container of a structured dance class that emphasizes rhythm, musicality, and authentic expression. Instead of drawing from a particular movement vocabulary, Dana shares the movement that comes most naturally to her, a hybrid reinvention of the diverse influences of her dance background: ballet, jazz, hip-hop, modern, West African, tap, and—most influentially—club dancing. The eclectic soundtrack spans Afro/soulful house music, hip-hop and R&B, dancehall, jazz, and more. The goal of Groovement is to get liberated through movement rather than feel oppressed by how to dance “right."
