WE DANCE BAREFOOT

to connect more fully with the Ground (socks are OK)

If you have a physical condition that you need dance shoes, then OK

WE DANCE WITHOUT WORDS

to make it easier to be embodied in a Meditative State.

No Verbal Instruction from the Facilitators.
No Talking from the Dancers.

WE DANCE AS WE ARE

No Drugs/Alcohol, No Phones, No Camera/Video, No Scents, No Expectations, No Judgements, No shoulds, No oughts…

Just Be Yourself; With Respect for Ourselves, the Space, and One Another.

When we step on the dance floor, we include our whole selves, even the frightened parts that want to hide. we dance through pain and sorrow. we dance with joy until our hard edges soften and our masks fall away. we meet other courageous dancers, weaving unbreakable threads of connection. our friendships transcend the boundaries of time and space. and it all melts together–beat, movement, breath–into a swirling vortex we call community. as the throbbing pulse of the dance floor matches our own heartbeat, we know, without a doubt, we are not alone.
