Technically, it's not yet winter -- December 22 is the first official day of the chilly season -- but it's not too soon to start chasing the cold-weather blues away at Winter Wow!, a day of dance, yoga and meditation workshops. The program kicks off with an Afro-fusion dance session, continues with a Bollywood fusion segment, winds down with some yoga, then picks right back up with the featured workshop of the day: on Bharata Natyam, a traditional South Indian temple dance that celebrates the body as a vessel of the divine. It all wraps up with a 45-minute guided meditation.
The workshops run consecutively, so you don't have to miss a minute; bring a yoga mat and water, wear comfortable clothes and pack a lunch -- or bring cash and grab a meal on Colfax between sessions. Winter Wow! runs from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. today at the Sol Vida Dance Studio, 4926 East Colfax Avenue, and costs $88. For more information, visit www.solvidadance.com or call 720-224-5990
