Although Spring is about to awaken, we are yet in the closeness and intimacy of winter's embrace. Now is the time to savour the last days of this quieter season and to tune into the dreamseeds that will soon sprout to life.
We honour and celebrate the importance of gathering around the communal fire to dance, to nurture ourselves and one another, as we await the inevitable quickening of Spring.

Monday nights offer a sweet dance experience - there's often a core group of dancers and space on the dance floor to move and get creative.

And of course, if you want to get swept into the wild energy of a full dance floor then this one's for you!
MESSAGES FROM THE COLLECTIVE
A Change in the Collective
Vanya Laporte has been with the DT Collective for 6 years as DJ/Facilitator and behind the scenes on the administration end of things. She is taking a pause from being an active member of the Collective to pursue new ventures with her nature-based program for kids and her Masters in Counselling. Thank you Vanya for your many, many hours of love and service to Dance Temple both on and off the dancefloor!
We are on the lookout for a playmate for the children! Please contact us if you or someone you know would love to supervise children on Thursday nights so they can be free to roam in and out of the dance space, and their parents can be free to get their dance on! This is a paid position.
Steward Road Closure
A reminder that Steward Road is currently closed although may be passable again soon. Stay tuned for updates!
Carpooling is a great option for getting to Dance Temple!! Meet at Embe Bakery at 6:40 pm to either give or get a ride! You can also check out the Dance Temple Carpool group and post for linkups.
Reminder of Intoxicant-Free Space
Dance Temple is a safe and sacred space that is intoxicant-free. If you are partaking in any substances before you come to dance, please do so discreetly and be aware of any scent that you may bring with you into the dance space. When we dance we are in a heightened state of sensitivity and we can strongly affect one another.

“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.”
― Alan Wilson Watts
Thank you for continuing to show up and dance! We hold so much gratitude for this circle of dancers that, together, we are. The magic that we weave on the dancefloor is truly something special and so very precious.
In dancing spirit ~
