Community Dances

I love when the room shifts, personal concerns melt, relentless thoughts dissolve, and for a moment we fall into joyous shared humanity.

—Lori Saltzman




Our weekly community dances have been going strong for the last 25 years. Rather than verbal instruction, our experienced teachers use a variety of music as inspiring gateways. There are no steps to learn -- the choreography comes from inside of you. We are different every time we step onto the dance floor; so are all the other dancers. This encourages creativity, spontaneity, and infinite possibilities. Dance experience is not required.

Please arrive on time. We close the doors half an hour after the start.

The early session on Sunday often sells out. To ensure a spot on the dance floor we recommend arriving a few minutes before 8:30.


For ages 13 and up. Children aged 10-12 are welcome with supervision.
