What we’re about

These are  free-style dances for people who love to dance. They are, for dancers, what musical jams are for musicians. If your previous experience dancing has been mainly in night clubs, our dances might feel like swimming in the ocean after having swum only in swimming pools--finally you have space and support for creativity, natural movement, freedom!  You'll see all levels of dancers at our weekly events, moving together or separately, lifted by our DJs' creative mixes of dance styles, varied beats, continents and eras.
Both are a 501(c)(3) nonprofits dedicated to promoting dance in the community. These dances are safe places to dance creatively and make new friends. Respect for others is essential. Alcohol and smoking are prohibited.

> Each one of our events is unique. Check the calendar for DJ details and special classes.
