I first arrived at dance tribe about 8 or 9 years ago. It had been a while since I had danced regularly, and I was looking forward to shifting some of my energy.  I was feeling sad and a bit isolated, and a bunch of other emotions were turning in me.  I knew I wanted to let go of some baggage.  

When my feet touched that dance floor, I opened myself up and began to let my fears and inhibitions go. I walked into the present moment, the dance of this moment, body, mind, and soul.  

The music was so good. I breathed that music right inside and let it fill me up.  It is a place to go where you can close your eyes and just listen. 

To make it even more interesting, I felt delightedly that strong sense of community I was building. Little did I know I was building one of my tribes people. I have danced both alone and together, and with that dance floor,  countless numbers of times. I have seen many relationships blossom, bloom, and ripen on that floor.  I have made partnerships, friendships, plans, dances, and performances on and off that dance floor.  

I cannot wait for it to be Sunday every week, I fear it is contagious!  And the music is out of this world! It just keeps getting better and more diverse with the many talented DJ’s that play. Come and enjoy!
