Everyone is welcome, acknowledged and included in the community.
We are committed to cultivating a dance community that aligns with the values of openness, inclusion, connection and fun.
The pressures of our society’s fast-paced lifestyle can leave us feeling stressed and without time to spend with others. We aim to offer a welcoming space for people to take a break from the daily grind, come together, and share in the delights of dancing.
Through dance people can relax and rejuvenate, while deepening their connection with ourselves and others. The FDFest and other community events offer the opportunity to develop new skills, build confidence, and feel inspired and invigorated. People can then leverage those positive benefits of dance and spread them into the rest of their daily lives and relationships. In this way, we truly believe that dance has the ability to make the world a better place!
Everyone is a part of the community; every age, gender, race, LGBTQ and others; we dance to all dance styles!
“Dance is for everybody. I believe that the dance came from the people and that it should always be delivered back to the people.” – Alvin Ailey
Dance is a universal language we can all speak. No matter where we are from in the world, what our life experiences have been, or which languages we speak, dancing provides a way for us to all connect and relate to each other. Dance fosters engagement, collaboration, growth, and appreciation of others. Dance has the power to break down barriers, and build unity.
Everyone is welcome, acknowledged and included at the FDFest and in the FD Community. We invite and embrace all people of all ages, lgbtq+ persons, abilities, nationalities, and religions… We are dedicated to creating an open, supportive environment where everyone feels safe, accepted and comfortable to express and enjoy themselves.
Each of us plays role in creating the shared inclusive community we desire.
We invite active participation in community building. We believe that everyone plays a role in developing a shared, inclusive dance community. Each one of us can contribute in some way to establishing a safe and supportive space for others to learn, explore and have a good time. It is our hope that all Flying Dance Community attendees will act as dance ambassadors by treating others with respect, offering a warm welcome or smile, and sharing their passion for dance.
You are encouraged to leave your expectations at the door and be open to possibilities, personal growth stems from there!
“Forget your troubles and dance” -Bob Marley
We hope that when you come to dance with us, you will leave your stresses and worries at the door, and remain open to all the possibilities that await you on the dance floor. Dance is the best medicine for whatever ails the soul. It is a wonderful means of relaxation where you can forget about life’s difficulties for a moment, and just let loose.
Dancing has been proven to be a great stress reliever, and it supports good physical and mental well-being. We encourage you to soak up the nourishing, healing and freeing benefits of dancing… de-stress, make some friends, and unwind!
