Dance Church announces Platform pop-up series

Dance Church®, the wildly-popular dance-focused movement class announces a four class partnership series with Culver City’s Platform, which brings together a curated collection of independent and creative businesses. The new partnership features the classic 55ish-minute Dance Church format outdoors in Platform Park on select Sundays this spring including February 20, March 20, April 17, and May 29.

"Platform’s commitment to design-forward, community driven businesses really aligns with Dance Church’s mission,” said Kate Wallich, Dance Church Founder and Chief Creative Officer. “We are thrilled to continue growing the Dance Church community in Los Angeles, and this partnership with Platform is one of the first unique experiences we hope to create for our current members and to introduce Dance Church to a broader audience in Los Angeles.” 

The four-part series will be held February 20, March 20, April 17, and May 29 at 10amPT in the Platform Park. Following the 55ish-minute classic Dance Church format, the party will continue with attendees and community members socializing over non-alcoholic spritzers provided by Ghia. Dance Church will also have an exclusive merch pop-up where attendees can purchase Dance Church branded items, including a limited edition ‘dancer’ hat, made just for the Platform LA x Dance Church partnership.

“Dancing together is just one part of the Dance Church experience. From end to end, it’s really about building friendships and community before, during, and after class. Whether it's brunch at Margot or riding the metro expo line to the beach, what we do post-class is all part of the experience,” said Wallich.

Classes are free for Dance Church, Platform LA, and Ghia members, and $20 for non-members. Registration required, secure your spot here.
