Dance Classes

    We are a fat-positive space open to all. We recognize that each of us has our own physical challenges and abilities, and we agree to keep a neutral approach and refrain from negative criticism of our bodies to keep this a welcoming space for all.

All dancers are encouraged to find and ask for adaptations so that movement feels safe, comfortable and honoring of our bodies. Our focus will be on dance technique, strength, balance, connecting with our bodies, honoring our unique abilities and challenges with self-compassion, and creative expression.
