Ecstatic Dance is a free-form movement space. Move however you wish. And you are always at choice about whether you want to dance solo or with other people.

You can expect a two-hour, DJ'd musical "journey." Music for the first 10-15 minutes is ambient and downtempo for you to arrive, warm up, and stretch as you like. The tempo begins to build gradually from there reaching a peak or catharsis in the second half of the dance. Afterwards the music comes down softening and slowing towards the end for relaxation and rest as we conclude the dance.

Brazilian Samba

Thursdays 6pm – 7:30pm

Dance Church is a place to deepen into dance, to lighten up your heart, and make new friends. There is no particular set way or form, no right or wrong ways to move. This event is family-friendly. Children are welcome.

We value your embodied expressions in a mindful community.
We are centering equity, and discovering what this looks and feels like. We are humbly trying to create an antiracist space to move freely and to embody diversity, equity and inclusion as an intentional community of movers and shakers. We don't know exactly what this will look like however we're open to ideas and would love feedback. If you have suggestions, please submit them in writing to one of the facilitators or the suggestion box.
