What we're about

Dance into Joy Bedford is a bi-weekly hour-long facilitated "expressive" dance practice to an inspiring curated playlist of music. We meet on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. You can let go of mental chatter, refresh your mind, and rejuvenate your body, inspire your heart and soul. Dancing provides balance from what ever busy-ness or non-activity you’ve been engaged in. Dancing your heart out allows you to process and integrate the challenges you've needed to face. In this sage and expressive practice you can expand your sense of connection to yourself, to others and the "divine".

Each class comes with a new playlist of music, new suggestions for movement, and of course, you will be in a new place each time you come. Sometimes you’ll arrive fatigued, looking to renew. Other times you’ll come with lots of energy. Each class is designed to bring you into the most powerful, loving and inspired connection to yourself. As a ritual practice over time, your self expression becomes freer, more confident, more varied. Your sense of who you are and what you can accomplish expands. You may enter into a state of BLISS. There is Live music several times a year and occasional special events.
