NOTE: Advanced and good dancers can join for FREE.

As of 12/5/2018 we are 35 people strong. We have Facebook, Whatsapp, Meetup, etc groups to stay connected.

Whether you are SINGLE or COUPLE you are welcome to join us and grow this community. We welcome beginners as our goal is not about perfecting dancing but rather to achieve a state of meditativeness and ecstasy through dancing.

We prefer to welcome people who appreciates the concept of yoga, meditation, dancing and staying fit and healthy.

Through partner dancing we strive to achieve a state of meditativeness. This is a form of yoga which is achieved through a rhythmic movement with a dance partner. This builds good connection with other human beings and also helps us grow in our spiritual self with added benefit of healthy body and a healthy mind.

We practice various partner dances like - Salsa, Bachata, Cha cha cha, Kizomba, Zouk, Tango, Hustle, Garba, etc. We are open to including any form of partner dancing as long as we can learn and enjoy the meditative experience with that.

We are a core set of dance enthusiasts who have combined dance experience of more than 20 years and have attended dance festivals and events around the world.

The "partner dance yoga" is an innovative concept that changes the way we look at partner dancing.

Come and learn with us and be a regular practitioner.
