An amazing tribe of heart centered and excepting people, like family! It fills my cup every time I participate in the dance, and feel very welcome to bring my daughter there to be surrounded by incred...ible souls. See More

Absolutely life changing for me!! I became addicted to the dance since day 1. A must try for all people who want to rediscover the messages and beauty within our bodies

Music and folks are fantastic. The venue is great too and the size of the floor is huge and nice smooth wood. Only challenge is there is no A/C in the summer months so you need to bring a lot of water... with you and take a break as needed. I would also like to request that an evening dance be added to the program. Thank you so much for everything. See More

An exceptional place to just be; as you are! The only church that requires you to take off your shoes and dance in reckless abandon to your ego and find your inner child. I am so in love with this com...munity. A place I call home where family will always greet you with a smile and a sweaty hug. Pure adoration, absolute acceptance and loving embrace. Oh how I love the place, the people. Family that you create and feel like you've finally arrived home! See More

Thought you would like this:

We have come to Be Danced...
Not the pretty dance
Not the pretty pretty, pick me, pick me dance
But the claw our way back into the Belly
Of the Sacred, Sensual Animal dance
The unhinged, unplugged, cat is out of its box Dance
The holding the precious moment in the palms
Of our hands and feet Dance

We have come to Be Danced
Not the jiffy booby, shake your booty for him dance
But the wring the sadness from our skin dance
The Blow the chip off our shoulder Dance.
The slap the apology from our posture Dance

We have come to Be Danced
Not the monkey see, monkey do dance
One two Dance like you
One two three, Dance like me Dance
but the grave robber, tomb stalker
Tearing scabs and scars open Dance
The rub the Rhythm Raw against our Soul Dance

We have come to Be Danced
Not the nice, invisible, self-conscious shuffle
But the matted hair flying, Voodoo Mama
Shaman Shakin’ Ancient Bones Dance
The strip us from our casings, Return our Wings
Sharpen our Claws and Tongues Dance
The Shed Dead Cells and slip into
The Luminous Skin of Love Dance.

We have Come to Be Danced
Not the hold our breath wallow in the shallow end of the floor dance
But the Meeting of the Trinity, the Body Breath and Beat Dance
The Shout Hallelujah from the top of our Thighs Dance
The Mother may I?
Yes you may take 10 giant Leaps Dance
The olly olly oxen free free free Dance
The everyone can come to our Heaven Dance

We have come to Be Danced
Where the Kingdom’s Collide
In the Cathedral of Flesh
To Burn Back into the Light
To unravel, to Play, to Fly, to Pray
To root in skin sanctuary
We have come to Be Danced

We Have Come.

this community has changed my life!!! I began going to dance church / ecstatic dance around 2 years ago, and it has offered not only a space for me to move and play without feeling outward judgement, ...but to radically transform myself on the inside in a myriad of ways, and still ever changing and growing. thank you so much for existing ♥ See More

Two years ago I discovered this fabulous safe place where I can express myself through movement. The people who come to Dance Church are beautiful open-minded and conscious human beings ever growing ...and evolving. I am in gratitude to the Dance Church coordinators and my Dance Church Family.

This is a high vibe, feel good event for anyone that likes to be more in their body while connecting with others. I really appreciate the type of people that show up to this event each week.

I love this place! It allows you to groove and express yourself in an environment free of judgement. It is a great place to meet nice people. :0)

This is an environment where I felt totally free to be myself, move, or not move, and just expand into the space. It was very liberating to feel that level of loving acceptance.

Here people move like they where meant to. And others nonverbally revive permission to move there unique way.
No leader, no rules, no style but the one u love the most your style (if u don't know that... looks like yet come and emulate what feels good till u get it... JUST RIGHT) See More

Thank you so much for the warm and inviting welcome last Sunday! It was awesome! I don't remember when I felt last time so wonderfully connected and lovingly with my own body. I'll come back for more ...and regularly starting in July! Sylvia See More
