Soul Sanctuary

Soul Sanctuary Dance, founded in 2003, is a weekly welcoming and inclusive all-ages community freestyle/ecstatic/shoes optional dance that supports free expression, community, physical and emotional health, and a spirit of generosity. We dance to an irresistible eclectic blend of music.

We charge no admission fee and we are all-volunteer run, but you are invited to pay it forward at this link to enable us to pay our expenses and keep our chain of gifts alive through our dance: paypal.me/soulsanctuarydance (note: account name says Zachary Pine.) We also accept donations at the in-person dance.

Our in-person and online dancers are equally important and cherished parts of our community. We include an online option because we know that some people can't be at our venue, or would not feel safe at our venue even in light of our Community Agreements and Covid-19 protocol; we also know that some people cannot, or choose not to, agree to our Community Agreements and Covid-19 protocol for in-person dancing.

Ashkenaz is wheelchair accessible.

The organizers are Herb Heinz, Kristi Coombs, Michelle Blair, and Zach Pine. Reach us here.
