"When the stars make you drool just like a pasta e fasul
When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
You're in love.." ~ Dean Martin

You may participate in the dance or just enjoy witnessing. There’s interactive art, live drumming, space for prayer or meditation, a zone for flow toys, and a kids corner with family actives. All are welcome! We dance barefoot, though non-street shoes may be worn for health reasons.
We consider the dance floor to be a sacred uplifted space and request conversation be taken outside to honor dance and respect those engaged in the dance journey. Please review the safety and respect guidelines posted at the door and any concerns at any time may be addressed with an available Space Holder. Honor each other, honor the space, and honor our hearts with dance!
