About Joshua Tree Music Festival

Held each May & October over 4 days/nights, JTMF is a resource-generating powerhouse of passionate creativity, community empowerment, and arts education for all ages. A family inclusive global music experience in the magical Mojave. Committed to radical inclusion, these four-day funky desert-style festivals create experiences where passion, purpose, family, and friends come together, and the boundary between performer and patron is blurred.

About Dance Church

Dance Church® is an all-levels movement class taught by professional dance artists that offers a fun and inclusive approach to dancing. Designed for people of all shapes and sizes, backgrounds and identities, Dance Church is a communal space for people who want to move their bodies.

The teacher leads this 55ish minute class in a series of movement cues, accompanied by a curated playlist of multi-genre pop music. The format is open but guided throughout. No prior dance experience necessary, but open mindedness is a prerequisite.

Dance Church classes are offered in dance spaces across the country. Our mission is to bring the joy and release of dance to every body, while supporting dance artists and partner organizations, and making connections between class takers and the dance world.

What to know:

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to class, and no later than 5 minutes after. We encourage you to pre-register.

What should I bring?

Dance-able workout clothing, a water bottle. This class is on bare desert earth and we recommend taking class barefoot or with stable and secure footwear.


ADA accessible. Please contact Joshua Tree Music Festival prior to arrival.
