Dance Church® is a movement class 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.
Kate Wallich (Los Angeles/Seattle/New York) is dancer, choreographer, educator and founder of Dance Church. She’ll lead this 50ish 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.
All levels, body types, identities and genders, 14 years and up. No previous training is required, but open-mindedness is a prerequisite.
Please be prepared to bring proof of vaccination and photo ID. Organizers recommend that participants wear sunscreen, comfortable shoes, and clothing for movement, and bring water. Portions of the class will include laying down, bring a towel for grass sensitivities. Walk-ups will not be allowed, so please register in advance, and encourage friends to do the same! We look forward to dancing with you.
