Join the Dance
4 days a week
Our dances are held TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS, SATURDAYS and SUNDAYS.
Whether in our living room or out in the forest, dance is a lifeline, health line and soul line. So is gathering with each other.
During the week, we'll start our Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:45am Pacific Time with a morning movement and dance practice. Each session is 60 minutes long. We ask you to pay and pre-register separately for each dance that you plan to attend.
On Saturday and Sunday, the dance begins at 9:45am Pacific Time. The dance ends at 11am and then there will be a 15 minute time for socializing, if you choose to stay.
Please note our new sign-in process:
We ask that you pay for each dance. We realize that the current crisis affects everyone differently, so we offer a sliding scale. We encourage those who can to sponsor another dancer in need. Your generosity is appreciated, as offering the dance is our teachers’ livelihood. If you need further financial assistance, please contact Leah at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Frequently Asked Questions (how this works):
What do I need to take an online class?
We will use a platform called Zoom. You’ll need a computer, ipad or iphone, and a good internet connection.
Download the zoom app here. It is painless, fast, and free.
If you are new to Zoom please do watch this introductory video from Zoom.
If you have a computer, choose that over the iPad or iPhone. Not only will the sound be better but also you can interact more and see more of others.
If you can, connect your computer/phone to an external speaker for better sound quality.
Make some space to dance. If you are in a shared space, find a room to yourself so you can dance un-self consciously. Or invite your housemates and/or family to join you. Minimize distractions (doorbell/ email/ phone/household appliances/TV) so that you can be as present as possible.
Wear comfortable clothes to move in and have your water bottle nearby.
