Ydance is a wildly fun, non-competitive movement process to set the body, mind and spirit wildly free, to release stress and create community.
We enter a state of mindlessness, laughter, sensation, swept away by exhilarating music.
We expericnce the sensual joy of movement, a healing connectiion with others, and peel away layers of stress.
One can go at their own pace, following their own timing and rhythm.
It's for any age, shape or size, regardless of fitness level.
This journey is so very simple, anyone can do it.
