SF Bay Area Holistic Calendar

Ongoing Freeform Dance Classes in SF Bay Area and Around

This brief listing will present ongoing classes for so-called unconditional dancing, or freeform dancing. You may see different names for this kind of moving meditation approaches with slightly different philosophical and actual customs and practices.


Freeform Dancing where each person has their own dance and moves with the room or with another person.  The experience is individual in a group container.  The Rules deal mainly with respecting personal space of yourself and others. There are no shoes, no talking, and no perfumes on the dance floor.

Here are selected dance styles, you may consider, if you would like to explore: 5Rhythms Dance, Ecstatic Dance, Zen Dance, Soul Motion, 5 Elements Dance, Biodanza, and many other.
