The Open Floor Marin community has gathered hundreds of people to dance and learn together since 1987. At the time it was considered weird, in fact, counterculture. Now science and psychology have caught up with what we knew all along: movement is a proven elixir for a longer, healthier life.
Please come prepared with the following:
A body that has lived a life, any mood, a broken heart or ready to rock. Sore feet, sore minds, gusto, wonky knees, shyness, healthy curiosity, enthusiasm. Willingness to breathe more, sweat more, and feel sudden bouts of love for yourself and/or others.
A water bottle.
builds trust, helps us cultivate healthy intimacy, and feeds our longing for connection.
Our audio archives have nearly 300 recorded classes that you can access at any time. Take a dance break whenever you need one, or embark on a long drive with music curated by a cadre of international teachers. Dance with friends before or after a great meal, make housecleaning fly.
