DoD teachers 2020

That’s right! Our low-pressure, high-joy annual event will be going live via Zoom this Sunday afternoon! Take a dance break while you’re sheltering in place! We’ll be beaming some fun over the internet with bite-sized, beginner-friendly classes from sweet and talented instructors, and a Zoom room full of participants committed to moving joyfully in their bodies, regardless of size. Drop in for a class or stay for the whole day! While we’re sad we can’t be together in the same physical space, we’re excited that the virtual format means people from outside the Bay Area can also join in. This day has always been intended as a place where people wanting to dip their toes into dance can do so in a comfortable way, and we’re hoping people will take advantage of this virtual opportunity!

This event is FREE and open to the public, but you must register through this form:

*** It’s a Day of Dance tradition to have excellent snacks in the lobby, and each year Matilda and Jessica bake their banana coconut muffins and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, respectively. We want this day to feel authentic to you, so when you register for this event you will also be sent both of these recipes so you can bake along at home. Both are excellent fuel for shaking your tailfeathers!
