Moondance A Dance For Women says
Moondance is a monthly dance gathering just for women. (Our definition of “women” includes anyone who identifies as a woman or was raised female, so, yes trans and genderqueer folks are absolutely welcome). It's not our intention to exclude the men (we love them!!), but to play together in a sacred space. Moondance's creation is a response to a growing community desire to nurture deep sisterhood with each other, to embrace the Divine Feminine in ourselves, and to have safe spaces to explore (through light facilitation followed by free, expressive dance) the ways in which we choose to express our womanhood. These explorations (as well as the facilitation and DJ sets) will be gently guided by an open-ended theme each month.

Moondance features a rotating lineup of DJs and facilitators from month to month. If you’d like to DJ or facilitate one of our dances, please contact organizer Katrina Koleto.

Because our intention is to create a safe snd sacred space to step out of our roles as guardians, caregivers, parents, etc. and to feel into, process, and express about all aspects of our lives-- our jobs, partners, kids, parents, addictions, abuse, violence, pleasure, exploration, fears, dreams, etc etc-- participants must be 18 or older. Exceptions will be made for exceptional teens on a case by case basis. (Please contact me prior to the day of the day of the dance if inquiring about bringing a teen.)

I visited the space the other day, and it's even more gorgeous than it used to be, thanks to the decorating touches of our lovely Mischa Marie Estrada! Warm colors, beautiful rooms... We're so very fortunate to be in such a luscious space for this event.

The dance floor will remain a sacred, non-verbal space as much as possible (please feel free to use words to take care of yourself, but take longer conversations to one of the other rooms). The lobby is large and has great chairs for relaxing & chatting in, plus we'll have two other cozy rooms to lounge in-- one is called "the womb room" and will be perfect for snuggles, quiet conversations, etc, and the other room has a massage table in it, which we can use to offer each other massage, reiki, etc.

SEPTEMBER MOONDANCE: For our inaugural dance, we’ll invoke the theme of Openings, as we begin to create this sacred space together, opening the circle, opening to ourselves, opening to each other.
