OUTDOOR & ONLINE Classes Keeping Community Together

As we collaborate to protect one another’s wellbeing, distancing has become the new jam.
Scroll down to find the blue registration links


JUNE 2 – We Dance for Black Lives
Proceeds go to those fighting for justice for our Black relatives, via

Black Visions Collective & Minnesota Freedom Fund.

Join us in Payson Park, 6:30-7:45pm
We will meet on the triangle of grass at the entrance to the park, facing back cove (see map).

~ Wear/bring a mask in case of wind ~

We dance in support of our Black and Brown relatives, nationwide.
We denounce the police murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbory, Tony Mcdade and so very many more in this country; in recognition of the disproportional toll Covid-19 is taking on our Black and Brown relatives; in recognition of our grief, and of the love we wish to send out to all grieving these losses and fearing for their lives, we offer this dance and more to come.  


As of June 2 all Dance classes are moving OUTSIDE for properly distanced dancing in Payson Park ~ weather dependent!

Each Dance class will continue Live ONLINE, rain or shine,
with the exception of the June 2 fundraiser.

Communally supported, sliding scale payments.
