Dance belongs to all of us.
All bodies, all ages, all levels, all abilities. Our intention is to provide a space where people come home to their bodies, find inspiration through their own expression, and build community with others who long to dance in an environment rich with acceptance, curiosity, and depth.
Our youth and adult dance classes blend holistic technique, exploration of dance concepts, and creative expression through choreography as well as simple improvisational frames. Expressive arts is seamlessly woven into all of our offerings to create an experience that engages the imagination, body, and heart on multiple levels. Looking for a personalized session that responds to your unique needs, curiosity, and desire to grow as a mover? We got that, too!
All are welcome at Yellowbird. Whether you are returning to dance after a long break, taking the risk of dancing for the first time in a group setting, or an experienced dancer longing for a new lens to explore through, you are most warmly welcomed. More importantly, you are met with intention and support so that you can enjoy your dancing body the way that all of us deserve. Through dance, we discover new ways to move through our lives.
