** Outdoor Dance Guidelines **
Be yourself, accept others. Respect the space and everyone in it. Yes to embodiment, creativity, and community! Please keep the dances drug/alcohol free and conversation off the dance floor!
WHAT TO EXPECT
This is a freeform movement space. Move however you wish. And you are always at choice about whether you want to dance solo or with other people.
You can expect a two-hour, DJ'd musical "journey" created by one of our resident DJs. Music for the first 10-15 minutes is ambient and downtempo for you to arrive, warm up, and stretch as you like. The tempo begins to build gradually from there reaching a peak or catharsis in the second half of the dance. Afterwards the music comes down, softening and slowing towards the end for relaxation and rest as we conclude the dance. Listen to a sample journey HERE.
It is VERY important to this community that dances feel reasonably safe and welcoming for ALL people…especially those who’ve been marginalized (LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, body type, neurodiverse, seniors). We ask everyone who comes to help us to continue making it so. We also ask for the willingness of traditionally marginalized people to come and dance with us as we learn and grow in this way. If funds are an issue, please come and dance contributing whatever you can...any amount is fine!
NOTE THAT WE ALSO DANCE OUTDOORS AT OCEAN VIEW PARK EVERY THURSDAY FROM 5PM-7PM (summer hours) or 4pm to 6pm (winter hours) with Daniel Mollner as the regular DJ...please come join us for those dances, too.
