Social Dancing: Learn couple dancing in a variety of genres - swing, waltz, rhumba, foxtrot & cha cha. Drop-in Classes. Couples and singles welcome.
Dancing for Healing: Sometimes emotions have no words.The Dancing for your Healing classes will give students an opportunity to begin to address areas of deep emotion (pain, fear, joy, anxiety...) by expressing them, non-verbally, through movement. We will seek to provide a safe environment so that we can listen to each others' stories, explore movement as it expresses and relates to those stories and support one another in the process.
