What to know

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 70ish 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.

Dance Floor Tips

Arrive 5-15 minutes before class, no late entry permitted Teachers lead classes from the center of the space and we change our facing often We like our music loud, and the tempo is upbeat and energetic When you cannot hear or see the teacher, let other class takers be your guide No talking allowed, but singing is highly encouraged We move through various actions and coordinations throughout class, there is no learning choreography At times we move around the space, we go down to the floor and we hold hands briefly You can always modify as you need — go bigger, smaller, faster, slower as you please A light scent will be used towards the end of class. Notify the teacher if you have a sensitivity. When in doubt, just dance. What should I bring? Clothing that you’re comfortable moving and sweating in We recommend taking class barefoot or in socks Clean studio sneakers allowed if you have a personal need, please be mindful. Water bottle Face mask (optional) Earplugs (optional, available upon request)
