Community Dances Offered ONLINE

We dance to liberate and connect with what is hidden to the mind. By tapping into the inner wisdom of movement, we are able to rediscover what we have always been, which is pure joy, peace, and celebration. We come to a safe environment to let life express itself through our dance and bodies.

5Rhythms® is a moving meditation founded and trademarked by Gabrielle Roth in the1960s. There are no steps to learn or follow, so the dancer is free to improvise and experiment. Structure is provided by the rhythms themselves. This means that dancing a wave in the company of other people can be both deeply personal and an intimately shared experience, regardless of each individual's dancing experience or physical ability. You don't need to think or worry about what you are doing, just relax and surrender to the wisdom of your body


Femme! is a movement experience that passionately fuses primal movement, sensual dance, meditation, creative visualization and celebration of the human form. Inspired by African, Tribal and Free Dance interwoven with the somatic and primal healing arts, Femme! creates sacred, safe spaces and invites everyone to reclaim and boldly display their power. To the background of live drumming, we journey into our personal and unique expression.
