MORE CLASS VIDEOS!
Your hosts Gabi and Nicole will lead you through an experience unlike anything you've ever seen. There will be wild music, hearty laughter, opportunities to create while also moving together in community with a bunch of other fun, friendly people.
This is an all levels class. No previous dance experience necessary. People who have felt discouraged from movement classes in the past due to size, age, ability or financial hardship are especially encouraged to join in. If you have specific concerns, don't hesitate to ask!
Note: Parts of class may challenge assumptions you have about dance or even yourself. We will work through it together and will save time at the end of class to reflect and answer questions.
I'm interested! What do I need to do??

What do the students say?
I felt totally comfortable and let loose more than I have in a long time. I felt myself in my body again and remembered how to use it.
Left first class singing out loud and a pep in my step.
It's a perfect mix of cerebral, physical and emotional activity.
The folk dancing was so beautiful the first day we did it, I wanted to weep for happiness. I admire the work you two wonderful women are doing, and think it is something important.
