It's a dinner party.
It's a dance party.
It's a glorious party,
and you are all invited.
Created by Allegra Preuss and Sophia Kardonski, Sobremesa is a unique experience where artfully prepared meals are paired with permission to dance and move. Each component of the meal is sourced and created with love and care, as is the music and guided dance experiences that occur before, during, and after.
All Sobremesa events are curated with the belief that each bite is a blessing and that the energy from our food is a cause for dancing, conversation, and true celebration.
How often do we eat, and as we do, we are thinking about how we should be eating something else, something less, or shouldn’t be eating at all? How often do we move, workout, use our bodies, and while we do we are thinking about everything it lacks, everything we want to change, everything we think it can’t do? How often, too, do we go to a party, attend a social gathering, or even spend time with people and wish the whole time that it would end, dreaming of going home to Netflix and bed?
What if we put as much importance into how we eat, as we did with what we eat? What if we treated our bodies with more kindness than punishment? What if we could create spaces so honest and enjoyable that we wouldn’t be thinking about how to plan our escape?
Sobremesa is a feast for the mind, body and soul. A liberating experience where we dance with appreciation, eat with presence, and socialize with ease. It's conscious partying and a crazy good time.
Sobremesa noun, /so.βɾeˈme.sa/
