About the Dance
A freeform conscious dance where there is no right or wrong, no set moves and no talking. Experience a safe space to release your inner dancer, to move like no one is watching, to dance the dance only you can dance is the freedom.
Dancing Dhevas is alcohol free, drug free and smoke free.
On the dance floor there is no talking, no shoes and no judgement, we respect each other and ourselves, the dance floor is a safe space to bring your individual self to the greater connection of community.
Riding the waves of music we dance to free ourselves of tension and habits, finding new ways to move and express, giving us insight into what restricts us in daily life. Dance in a community of friends.

Open Floor offers a very exciting future for our dance community as we align with their Values and business model.

Open Floor Movement Practice is a lively, sweaty, full-on dance inquiry:
- How can we move and include it all – feelings, other people, thoughts, wild passions, limitations?
- Can we use movement to soften the tight spots in our tender hearts and stretch our capacity for relationship?
- What happens if we turn old repetitive thoughts into choreography for creative dances?
We start small, end quiet. We respond to obstacles and mind the gaps. Ask, how am I now? What’s possible? Find direction. Add fire. Push the limit. Embrace paradox.
There's an essential movement language we all speak when we take these questions to the dance floor. We call on universal elements that are inherent in any moving body, such as breath, gravity, centering, expansion and contraction. This is the common ground that all embodiment practices share.
Open Floor is where the rubber meets the road – a place for creative focus and loving attention.
Since the beginning of time human beings have gathered to dance. Mindful movement is surging all over the planet because it's good for us. People who dance regularly have keener minds, greater emotional intelligence, and a calmer presence. Connection, compassion, and communities grow. In this challenging world, common sense tells us to spend time dancing.
The ripple effect is inescapable. One dance can change someone’s day, one act of kindness can inspire a whole community. Students often leave a session able to bring a more generous presence out into the world. We dedicate our work to the common good, to the benefit of all beings.
Common ground. Common sense. Common good.
This is what we cultivate on the Open Floor.
