Dance Church™

“this is the dance party

you wish you had last night.”

Dance Church™ is an all abilities movement class that offers a fun, nonexclusive approach to dancing. Designed for people of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, identities and genders. Dance Church™ is a communal space for everyone who wants to move their body.

The teacher guides this 90 min class in a series of movement cues accompanied by a curated playlist of multi-genre pop music. Listen, explore, laugh and sweat (a lot) together.

No previous training is required, but open-mindedness is a prerequisite.

Dance Church™ was created by choreographer + director Kate Wallich in 2010.

in 2017, bone velvet and Kate created a partnership to expand Dance Church in Portland, the first city outside of it’s hometown, Seattle, to hold the class regularly. CO-FOUNDERS CLAIRE + ALLISON ARE THE ONLY TWO TRAINED INSTRUCTORS IN PORTLAND AND CAN BE FOUND TEACHING AT STEPS PDX.

Since then, Dance Church has grown to several locations including: Los Angeles, New York, and Indianapolis as well as varying pop-up classes worldwide.
