KCRW’s critically-acclaimed podcast Bodies Season 3 is finally back with a diverse range of stories about accepting differences in our bodies and engaging in the critical thinking process that aids in resisting the social pressures to conform. What better way to celebrate this theme than dancing it out together to empower all of our bodies?! Join KCRW and EVERYBODY Gym on Sunday, November 7th at Rio de Los Angeles State Park from 12pm-4pm PST with a ballroom-inspired dance workout, yoga, and a Latinx dance style movement class rooted in playfulness.
