“It’s a sure sign of summer if the chair gets up when you do!”
Take a break from the heat and enjoy the chill in our ~ cool ~ dance space! Move to your hearts delight within our climate controlled hall and enjoy dancing inspired by your inner heat!

▬ ★ NEXUS ECSTATIC DANCE ★ ▬
A monthly dance journey to take us into self exploration and creative expression. We honor moving as the music inspires you in a judgement-free space designed to inspire easeful presence and energetic flow. Nexus is an opportunity to connect with your self, shake up your patterns, let free-form inspiration abound, and co-create a transformative experience.
Let carefully crafted musical journeys allow you to process emotions, exercise your body and mind, lift your spirits, and be welcomed by a vibrant local community as part of a global family in ecstatic expression. You can engage in the dance as you wish… through movement, meditation, expansion, observation, introspection, development, and connection.
You’ll be amazed at what emerges when you let go and just dance!
